Debugging with Developer Studio?

Hi, I originally posted this on the legato forums, but I think this might be more of a Developer Studio related issue.

I am trying to debug my FX30s. I have a legato app that uses a shared library that I built with the cross compile tools (from command line). It all builds and runs OK, but when I try and debug it, GDB complains that it can’t load the symbols and exits.

So I am not sure what I am doing wrong? On the “Executables” tab the libraries are shown along with all source information on the right.

I am using DS 5.0.0 and LF 16.10.1

Do I need to build this in a particular way?
Any def files entries required?
I assume I should be able to debug this even though I am using my shared library?
I can’t see where I might add the suggested arguments in Developer Studio?

Any help is appreciate.


Hi @karlkuhn

At first, I would suggest you to upgrade to latest DS version (5.3.1)
It will still be compatible with your environment.

Thanks @daav, I tried that as way to get it working. With no luck unfortunately.

I’ve also update to 16.10.1.m3 FW and AF…

Any ideas?
