3.1/3.2 EDK - mb-ld or powerpc-eabi-ld: "Cannot open output file <processor>/code/executable.elf: Permission denied"


Keywords: mb-ld, permission, denied, executable.elf, GDB, powerpc-eabi-ld

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
If the GDB-GUI is open and the executable.elf is loaded, I cannot re-compile the "C" code because GDB blocks the executable.elf file. The following is an example of error messages that are reported:

mb-ld: cannot open output file mb/code/executable.elf: Permission denied

make: *** [mb/code/executable.elf] Error 1


To work around this problem, close GDB first before re-compiling the source file.
