Using the plugin that comes with the 7.10.10 SDK I have been unable to debug using the GDB that comes with the current version of CodeSourcery (GNU gdb (Sourcery G++ 2010.09-43) 7.2.50.20100908-cvs)

 

On a hunch I tried retrograding the gdb component to an earlier release (GNU gdb (Sourcery G++ 4.4-184) 7.0.50.20100218-cvs)

 

Using the retrograded GDB component, debugging works as intended now.  Apparently there has been some change in GDB that has rendered it incompatible with the GDB-DSF environment of the plugin?

 

Also,  the plugin from 7.10.12 doesn't work for me at all, refusing to generate an application or extension and crashing with a java null exception.   After the crash, I have an empty project folder but no contents..

 

Hello,
Can I ask which version of Eclipse you are running?  We have validated our kit against Galileo so if you're using Helios, would recommend rolling back.  Also you mention that you upgraded CS, I assume that this was to CS Lite and not the fully licensed version.  As a test you may want to create a new workspace and see if that also solves some of the problems as the workspace caches stuff that can cause problems when you switch versions of Eclipse/plugins.

Brian

CodeSourcery's current product is Helios-based.  What we are using is the licensed version of CodeSourcery's current product (freshly acquired for our team of developers).  This release seems to have quite a few issues interacting with the plugin environment.
The CS release is indicated in the messages above: Sourcery G++ 2010.09-43
(I'm speaking of a freshly created workspace here too, no legacy cruft anywhere in sight).

Just tried with a vanilla Galileo installation.  Still no dice, 7.10.12 plugin refuses to generate a project and gives up no information about why it didn't.

Hello,
Correction to my earlier post.  The “CS Lite” version (Sourcery G++
Lite Edition) mentioned earlier is assumed for the Visual Studio Plugin,
not the Eclipse Plugin.  For the Eclipse Plugin we recommend using the
licensed Sourcery G++ for Brew MP (both "IA32 Windows" and "ARM EABI"
versions).  However, you may use the Lite version with off-the-shelf
Eclipse at your own risk.  See installation instructions for more
details: https://developer.brewmp.com/tools/sdk
Please let me know if you have any additional issues or need further assistance.

Brian

Our original issues still stand...   Both current free and licensed product GDB from CodeSourcery won't work with the Brew SDK plugin GDB-DSF environment under any version/dialect of Eclipse and 7.10.12 doesn't appear to be able to generate a project for us.
 
(note: our GDB issues relate to the simulation environment)

Hi,
The latest download versions on Codesourcery that have Helios don't work with the current Eclipse Plugin. For now, please do the following to get the version of CodeSourcery that will work for you.

uninstall SG++
log into portal, click on "All versions..." link in the Download
column of the eval/subscription table
for ARM EABI, click on "Sourcery G++ 4.4-275" link and download the
installer under Recommended Packages
for IA32 Windows, click on "Sourcery G++ 4.4-184" link and download
the installer under Recommended Packages
install both products

Sorry for the confusion.
 
Best regards,
Karina

We have purchased full licenses from CodeSourcery (per recommendations from Qualcomm) for quite a few developer seats only to find out that they're incompatible?
 
Can anyone provide an ETA for an upgrade of the SDK plugin that will support current versions of Eclipse?

Hello,
I'm the product manager responsible for tools.  Both CodeSourcery and the Qualcomm Brew team are actively investigating the issue, but haven't yet found the root cause.  Once we understand the root cause we'll be able to provide you with an ETA on the fix.  We hope to have a root cause soon and will let you know once we do.
Thanks,
Mark

Thanks Mark :)

Thanks Mark :)

I am happy to report that the newly released 7.11.* SDK is greatly improved for us.  We are able to get projects generated and are able to use the new "class add" features (*smile*).
Also greatly appreciated are the new custom build options in the Brew MP project properties.   These go a long way toward making large team development practical.
We still have the remaining GDB-DSF issue but we can work around that for the time being by attaching to the simulator process with command-line GDB.
All in all, kudos for what appears to be a great SDK release..

Awesome, glad to hear things are working better for you with the new release.  We'll keep you updated on GDB side of things.
