- Subject: gdbserver on OS X -- abandon all hope?
Four years ago the question of gdbserver on OS X came up here, but
with no joy. Hoping that surely this situation had changed I
downloaded the source today, but gdbserver will still only configure
for Linux targets.
I guess it must be hard or someone would have done it by now? What a
shame, I can compile for my ARM target under Eclipse in OS X but it
looks like Windows/USB-JTAG will be necessary to debug it. On the
other hand perhaps it will save me a bundle as there's no point in my
getting ARM's newly-gdbserver-compatible RealView ICE JTAG adapter.
And no, there's nothing at Apple regarding gdbserver except blindly
copied FSF documentation. Not a single hit in the Apple discussion
forums. And nothing I can find anywhere on Tiger OS X 10.4. Now, in
fact there are gdbserver sources located at Apple:
...but the configure.srv file lists only Linux targets. Probably
blindly copied (like the documentation) and never built.
Is it time to abandon all hope?
