DBT Warning 00056: Debug table format error at offset 0x0 in area .debug_info

Applies to: RealView Development Suite (RVDS)

Answer

The legacy armsd and AXD debuggers do not support the new DWARF3 debug information produced by RVCT 3.0. When loading images created with RVCT 3.0, the debugger will report:

DBT Warning 00056: Debug table format error at offset 0x0 in area .debug_info

To load images built with RVCT 3.0 into armsd and AXD, you must compile your application using the --dwarf2 command-line option.
