[dsdp-tm-dev] Re: Remote Debugging
For remote debugging, you'll need a _local_ gdb executable that is
capable of understanding the remote exe file and architecture, and
connecting to the remote gdbserver. The remote gdbserver is only a very
thin layer, most work will be done locally.
I'm not sure what version of gdb you could get for Windows X Linux
debugging. Most vendors who do cross-compile / cross-debug in their
commercial products based on GNU Tools and Eclipse, build their own
versions of gdb for the cross-support from the sources. Therefore,
cygwin gdb or mingw gdb may not work out of the box unless you compile
them yourself and enable cross-support for linux. [building from source
may not be too difficult].
I do agree, though, that the error message should be more informative.
Ewa, can you help any further? Is there any point in running a whole gdb
remotely and piping the gdb/mi channel through the RSE IHostShell,
instead of just running the gdbserver remotely?

I am tryiing to do a remote c++ debug from a local windows xp machine to
a remote linux machine. The XP machine is running eclipse sdk 3.2.0 with
cdt 3.1.0 and RSE 1.0.1. The remote machine is running i686 Red Hat &
gdb v6.0 (I think).
I can set up remote file and shell access and that works fine. I can
also remotely launch applications too. However when I try to launch a
debug session I get the mystery error of "Error creating session"
Details: "Exec error: launching failed" (3 times)
The last output from the Console is: /my/home/dir>gdbserver :8888
gdbserver :8888 /my/path/rse_test;exit
Process /my/path/rse_test created; pid = 16477
I don't really know where to begin in figuring out why it doesn't work.
Could you maybe point me in the right direction?
Also, the gdb-server continues to run after this fails, so I have to
kill it in the processes tree on the left before trying again. Is there
a smarter way around that?
Thank you for your help
