C++ Remote Debugging with Eclipse CDT (Linux)
Just for people that want to remote debug an application.
(Plz mention:You have to compile your application in debug-mode!!!)
First you need to install gdb and gdbserver:
sudo apt-get install gdb gdbserver
Then you have to start the server. The server waits on a given port until gdb from the host connects:
gdbserver host:10000 your_app (e.g. gdbserver localhost:10000 AppOgreKit )
Now you have to switch to eclipse.
Click the RUN-Menu and navigate to the ‘Debug Configuration’. There you have to select ‘C/C++ Remote Application’ and click the small yellow plus icon on top of the dialog to create a new Remote Application.
Now you can check the default settings in the Debugger-Tab->Connection. Choose here the host where the server is running and the corresponding port.
Press Debug and the local gdb will call the gdb-server that starts the application on the server.
