Eclipse Embedded CDT

NOTE: The information below is outdated. Please apply the instructions as provided here:

The Eclipse C/C++ Development Tools (CDT) has excellent GDB support. However, there are a few stumbling blocks when trying to debug embedded applications, which Zylin AS has made some modifications in Eclipse CDT to improve support for GDB embedded debugging.

  • Requires Eclipse 3.2 release.
  • Both plugins must be installed together.

To install:

  1. Find the plugin installation directory. You can do this by going to HELPSoftware UpdatesManage Configuration. This should provide a window that looks like:

  1. Make note of this directory. In this case /usr/share/eclipse
  2. Delete previous CDT and Zylin Embedded CDT directories from /usr/share/eclipse/features and /usr/share/eclipse/plugins directory.
  3. Download the plugins - 20060908 snapshot, and unzip them into to the /usr/share/eclipse directory.
  4. restart eclipse.
  5. In HELPAbout Eclipse SDKPlug-in Details, see if Zylin is properly registered.
  6. Open a debug Windows, and select Embedded debug (Native)
