Debugging Linux Applications in the SDSoC IDE

Within the SDSoC™ IDE, use the following procedure to debug your application:

  1. Select the SDDebug as the active build configuration and build the project.
  2. Copy the generated SDDebug/sd_card image to an SD card, and boot the board with it.
  3. Make sure the board is connected to the network, and note its IP address, for example, by executing ifconfig eth0 at the command prompt.
  4. Select the Debug As option to create a new debug-configuration, and enter the IP address for the board
  5. You now switch to the SDSoC environment debug perspective which allows you to start, stop, step, set breakpoints, examine variables and memory, and perform various other debug operations.
