Adding symbols to SDK 2017.4 with system debugger

Hi all,


I generated a .elf. It was generated wrapping another three executable files. I did it with my own scripts. Now I want to debug it using the system debugger, I'm able to run the software and debug it using the assembler functions but I cannot set a breakpoint over my source file code. Why? I added the executable files compiled with -g in Symbols tab at debugger configuration.


NOTE: Target is remotely connected to Windows, I am using a Linux machine where I compile and debug from.


Thanks in advance,

Re: Adding symbols to SDK 2017.4 with system debugger


Did you enable symbol server while creating the target connection to the remote Windows machine in SDK? hw_server running on remote machine will not have access to your local filesystem, so it can't read the symbols. Symbol server will act as a proxy and transmit all the symbol info to the remote server
