Hello everyone,

 

I was working on my project just fine this morning, and all of a sudden I am no longer able to debug and download code into my FRDM-K22F device.

Looking at the console, I get the following messages:

 

From JLinkGDBServerCL console:

From the arm-none-eabi-gdb console:

monitor clrbp monitor reset monitor halt monitor regs flushreg Register cache flushed. monitor semihosting enable Warning: the current language does not match this frame.

It was working fine a couple hours ago, and it just started giving me this error.

When I try loading another project, the other project loads well, leading me to believe there is something wrong with this particular project. I am attaching the project

Hi Christian,

the messages are not matching when I had such a problem (Failed to Debug with GDB: Breakpoints or Expressions on non-existing Locations | MCU on Eclipse), but it might be worthwile to remove/delete all breakpoints/watchpoints?

The GDB used in KDS has an issue in this area.

I hope this helps,

Erich

I have the same problem.  It should have been fixed by now.

HOLY MOTHER OF BREAKPOINTS!!!

I did as you said, and removed all breakpoints, and it actually runs now! I owe you much gratitude.

Any insight as to why this happen?

I think what happens is this: gdb tries to set a breakpoint on a debug/line information entry which does not exist any more (e.g. code got optimized out).

GDB internally traps/raises an exception, and as a result the connection gets terminated.

The good thing is that with the Q4_2014 launchpad tools (see Switching ARM GNU Tool Chain and Libraries in Kinetis Design Studio | MCU on Eclipse) that issue in gdb is fixed (at least I was not able to reproduce it any more.

Eric,

Thank you so much for the help. I did notice that whenever i put a breakpoint, and then i change the code (add/remove lines) the breakpoints dont move with the lines!!! This is crazy to me, as I am used to the breakpoints moving with the source code.

This is good to know and to keep in mind for the future.

It depends how you set the breakpoints. If you are using the Source view, then breakpoints are identified by file name/line number:

you can use the gdb commands (e.g. 'break') to set the breakpoints on functions/etc.
