I have an ELF-only software application in XPS. When I connect to my target board and launch the debugger, I receive a pop-up window stating that I cannot debug ELF-only applications in XPS. How can I work around this problem?
Generally, ELF-only applications in XPS exist because the software project was imported into SDK. To maintain clarity between software debugging environments, the pop-up window comes so that users will debug their software application in the environment in which it exists and, in this case, SDK.
To debug an ELF-only project in XPS, launch a Cygwin shell and type in the following:
cygwin$ mb-gdb executable.elf
cygwin$ powerpc-eabi-gdb executable.elf
