[SOLVED] Mac OSX debugging ground to a halt



  • Hi,

    I'm on OSX 10.7.4 and for a long time debugging with Qt Creator and gdb was snappy.

    Suddenly it became very sluggish - long debug session start and stop times, 5 second step-overs.

    The first time it happened I uninstalled Qt Creator and reinstalled a newer version, it seemed better but has resumed its slowness. It looks like Qt Creator is waiting for gdb.

    And today it REALLY ground to a halt - a debug session takes about a minute to start. Its impossible to use. I tried deleting everything in ~/.config/Nokia/ as described here http://doc.qt.digia.com/qtcreator-2.2/creator-faq.html#general-questions but no effect.

    Anyone else seen this and have a suggestion? Running gdb in a terminal doesn't seem to be slow.

    I'm now on 2.7.

    Thanks

    EDIT - I have to Force Quit Qt Creator to stop debugging too!



  • Solved by removing

    ~/.config/QtCreator/

    Yippee!



  • Worked for me as well.
