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:
gdbserverand application already running on the FVP.
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.
gdbserveralready running on it, select Connect to already running gdbserver and configure the options.
gdbserverwhen disconnecting from the FVP.
gdbserver, and debug an application already present on the target, select Start gdbserver and debug target resident application, and configure the options.
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 editors.
