2.5 Configuring a connection to a Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP) model for
Linux application debug
You can use DS-5 to connect to a Fixed Virtual Platform (FVP) model for Linux application debugging.
Using the Debug Configurations dialog
box, you can configure DS-5 Debugger to either:
- Connect to a
gdbserver and application already
running on the FVP.
- Connect to the FVP, start
gdbserver, and debug an
application already present on the target.
Use the described options to configure a connection to the Cortex®-A9x1
FVP (preconfigured to boot ARM® Embedded
Linux) supplied with DS-5. Connecting to other FVPs available in the DS-5 configuration
database follow a similar sequence of steps.
|FVPs installed with your edition of DS-5 are listed
under the ARM FVP (Installed with DS-5)
tree. Compare DS-5 editions to see which FVPs are available with your license.|
From the main menu, select
In the configuration tree, select DS-5
Debugger and then click
New to create a new configuration.
In the Name field, enter a suitable
name for the new configuration, for example, Hello
In the Connection tab, in the
Select target panel, browse and select .

Either click Apply to save the
configuration settings or click Debug if
you want to connect to the target and begin debugging immediately.
Alternatively, click Close to close the
Debug Configurations dialog box. Use
the Debug Control view to connect to the
target associated with this debug configuration.
Debugging requires the DS-5 Debug
perspective. If the Confirm Perspective Switch
dialog box opens, click Yes to switch
perspective. When connected and the DS-5 Debug
perspective opens, you are presented with all the relevant views and
