This section describes the limitations of the
Connections are only allowed to single-core simulations, not to multiprocessor or multicluster simulations.
No tracepoint support.
No parameter support.
Memory view only shows the current memory space.
Disassembly only uses the current instruction set.
Breakpoints can only be set on the current memory space.
You cannot use GDB when debugging software that uses semihosting. When a program tries to use semihosting with the GDB plug-in, the GDB debugger wrongly reports having hit a breakpoint:
Program received signal SIGTRAP, Trace/breakpoint trap.
When using the
GDBRemoteConnection plug-in, start the simulation with the
-S) flag. You cannot attach the
GDBRemoteConnection plug-in to running simulations. It can cause segmentation faults on the simulation and the GDB client.
