I managed to get gdb to do multi-threaded debug using a gdb on the
target, after Daniel J helped with a patch to sys/procfs.h
I am now trying to do host target with gdb/gdbserver. The program on
the target uses pthreads.
I can connect, but as soon as you try to continue (to a breakpoint) I
Program received signal SIG32, Real-time event 32.
warning: Warning: GDB can't find the start of the function at
I know that SIG32 is used for the thread control on the target, but I'm
not sure if the host gdb is supposed to receive this. I tried "set
handle SIG32 pass noprint nostop"
and variations, but this didn't help.
Does anyone know whether there is some special setup needed on
gdb/gdbserver to use the multi-threaded gdbserver ??
My environment is as follows:
