Eclipse debug error LM3SXXX

Posted by OCCAM on August 7, 2011
I think I've configured Eclipse Indigo properly

I can edit, compile and program the MCU on the LM3S6965 evaluation board. Verified by making a code change that is reflected on the display. I can't seem to get debugging working.

Open OCD seems to be running

Info: openocd.c:92 main(): Open On-Chip Debugger (2007-08-17 11:00 CEST)

When I initiate debug session I get
Error while launching command: gdb --version

What's wrong?

Have you installed GDB?
If you have, then try connecting to your target via the GDBs telnet interface. This usually offers better indication of what's wrong.

Yes GDB is installed ... I'll have look at the telnet interface .. .thanks

OK ... one more step up the learning curve .... GDB is not GDB.exe when using Code Sorcery Lite, it's "arm-none-eabi-gdb.exe"

So Now the debugger runs, but will not stop at break points .... I get little yellow "yield" signs at the breakpoint. Sheesh ... what a pain in the arse!
