Using an RSE connection to work with an ARM Linux target

On some targets you can use a Secure SHell (SSH) connection with the Remote System Explorer (RSE) provided with DS-5.

To set up a Linux SSH connection to an ARM Linux target:

  1. In the Remote Systems view, click on Define a connection to remote system in the Remote Systems view toolbar.

  2. In the Select Remote System Type dialog box, expand the General group and select Linux.

To connect to the target and run the Gnometris application:

  1. In the Remote Systems view, right-click on the new Linux connection and select Connect from the context menu.

  2. In the Enter Password dialog box, enter a User ID and Password if required.

  3. Click OK to close the dialog box.

  4. Copy the stripped version of the Gnometris application, gnometris, and the library from the local file system on to the target file system. You can do this by dragging and dropping the relevant files in the Remote Systems view.

  5. Ensure that the files on the target have execute permissions. To do this, right-click on each file in the Remote Systems view, select Properties from the context menu and change the checkboxes as required.

  6. Open a terminal shell that is connected to the target and launch gdbserver with the application:

    1. In the Remote Systems view, right-click on Ssh Terminals.

    2. Select Launch Terminal to open a terminal shell.

    3. In the terminal shell, navigate to the directory where you copied the gnometris application, then execute the following command:

      export DISPLAY=ip:0.0
      gdbserver :port gnometris



      is the IP address of the host to display the Gnometris game


      is the connection port between gdbserver and the application, for example 5000.


      If the target has a display that you can use, then you do not need to export DISPLAY.
