2013.4, 14.7 - SDK - Cannot add breakpoints when remote debugging via Linux in SDK


I have a simple SDK application that I want to debug remotely on Linux via the remote debug capabilities in the SDK tool, however, I cannot set the breakpoints.

How can I resolve this problem?


If the symbol file is not added, then you will not be able to add breakpoints.

To add the symbol (ELF) file, right-click on the processor (under the Debug tab) as shown below:

Note: The ELF file must reside on the machine that the HW_SERVER was launched.
