7.1i EDK, Mentor Nucleus EDGE - Debugger does not stop at the 2nd breakpoint


Keywords : XMD, MicroBlaze debugging

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
When I use Mentor Nucleus EDGE with XMD from EDK 7.1i, I see the following problem:

"When I put breakpoints in subsequent Assembly locations from Nucleus EDGE, the debugger does not stop at the 2nd breakpoint but continues till exit"


When the Mentor Nucleus EDGE GUI is used with XMD in EDK 7.1i, an "XMD.exe" patch is needed.

1. Download the patch from the ftp site:

2. Unzip this file into the %XILINX_EDK%/bin/nt/ directory.

NOTE: This patch should be used only when using Nucleus EDGE GUI and should not be used while using GDB from EDK 7.1i. This patch is needed only for EDK 7.1i. XMD has been updated in EDK 8.1i to resolve this issue.
