Qt Creator debugger hangs

  • I'm starting to code with Qt Creator but I'm having problems using the debugger because it hangs :(
    I can start the debugger an break to the main function. My main function is :

    #include "mainwindow.h"
    #include <QApplication>
    int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        QApplication a(argc, argv);
        MainWindow w;;
        return a.exec();

    When i start debugging it runs to the first line and i can choose step over, but on the line MainWindow w it hangs and in the debugger log apears:

    s[Thread debugging using libthread_db enabled]
    >~"Using host libthread_db library \"/lib64/\".\n"

    It seams a gdb timeout, but I have no idea what is going wrong, so any help will be appreciate.
    I'm using Slackware Linux 64 bits and Qt creator 4.1.0.

  • Unchecking the option "Load .gdbinit on startup" on Tools->options->Debugger->GDB solved the problem.
    Thank you.
