Debugging with Eclipse (MVM)
Introduction[edit | edit source]
Generally speaking, Managed Virtual Machines including Yocto build system provide all the required stuff to remotely debug applications running on the target, via Eclipse/ADT. It is beyond the scope of this article to describe in detail how to use Eclipse[a]. Instead some MVM-related information are provided, in order to properly configure it to work with DAVE Embedded Systems products. For more details about Eclipse, please refer to these links:
Eclipse integration in MVM[edit | edit source]
By default, cross-tool chain is intalled in
target-specific source code paths:
Configuring the Cross-Toolchains[edit | edit source]
- Run Eclipse program:
To configure the Cross Compiler Options, you must select the type of toolchain, point to the toolchain, specify the sysroot location, and select the target architecture.
- Select "Preferences" from the "Windows" menu.
- Select "Yocto Project ADT", add the cross-toolchain configuration and save the profile as your project name ("targetname" in this case). Click "Apply" and "OK".
Example[edit | edit source]
The following example shows how to build and debug classical "Hello, world!" example when working with SBC Lynx Embedded Linux Kit (XUELK).
- Please note that Eclipse is not just a debugger, it is a full-featured IDE that allows to manage and build complex projects with a powerful user-friendly graphical interface.
