Debugging with GDB
For application development on Linux or Android, it is common to use GDB (the GNU Project Debugger) for debugging.
The following resources will help you get started debugging with GDB:
- The Linux Application Debug Tutorial shows how to debug the open source fractal rendering application Xaos running on Linux on an Arm Cortex-A8 processor-based development board using Arm Development Studio 5 (DS-5) Community Edition.
- The Learn how to debug an ARM Linux application on a Pandaboard video demonstrates debugging on the the free toolchain ARM DS-5 Community Edition.
- The Debugging Linux applications on the Altera SoC with ARM DS-5 video shows how to use ARM DS-5 Altera Edition, part of the Altera SoC EDS toolkit, to debug a Linux application running on an Altera Cyclone V SoC-based board.
