Very odd behavior with GDB and QTcreator ( Breakpoints not working, debugger works though )
So I'm trying to fix this issue for
daysweeks now, problem:
Debugging works fine with the build in terminal, however when I try to use a external terminal it seems to disregard my breakpoints.
Even more odd is that when put a sleep function in my program then stop it. I could step over and in functions just fine, all functionality was there with the exception of breakpoints.
( I tried with the latest kits and QTcreator versions as well with different compilers and versions of them all, and yes I've tried "sudo echo 0 > /proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scope" )
Note: There was a odd case when it did work, where I was messing with some settings, wasn't able to replicate it afterwards.
Running Debian 8, feel free to ask system / config info if required.
@Rick How do you start your app for debugging in that external terminal? You need to start from QtCreator or to attach to already running app ("Debug/Start Debugging/Attach to Running Application").
I'm sorry I thought it was kind of obvious from my perspective since I've been busy with it for a long time, there's an option in QTcreator under Project => Build & run => Run => Run in terminal.
Without it it works fine, but if the option is enabled the debugger doesn't stop at breakpoints.
The option you describe still has the issue where I could still step in code but breakpoints still aren't functional.
@Rick Just tested on Windows 7 with Qt 5.7 MinGW (GDB) - it works.
@jsulm Suppose it must be my setup then?
EDIT: I'll do a full reset upon my settings and my external config. I'll see if that fixes things.
