Debug Download failed to SP601 board

I´m working with EDK 12.1 and a Spartan SP601 board. I worked for a while with small c-Projects with SDK and debugging via the on-board USB-JTAG. With another (bigger) project I can not download the elf-file to the board.

 

I get the following message (if I try it the first time after downloading the bitstream (this works always):

 

(mb-gdb console)

.gdbinit: No such file or directory.
Ignoring packet error, continuing...
Ignoring packet error, continuing...

 

(after that in a message box)

Unexpected error while launching program: Error downloading program to target: Target is not responding (timed out)

 

Trying it more times I get the message:

(mb-gdb console)

.gdbinit: No such file or directory.
Ignoring packet error, continuing...
Ignoring packet error, continuing...

 

(after that in a message box)

Unexpected error while launching program: target selection failed

 

I already tried a .gdbinit file with the following entries:

set download-write-size 4096
set remote memory-write-packet-size 4096
set remote memory-write-packet-size fixed
set remote memory-read-packet-size 4096
set remote memory-read-packet-size fixed

Got the same result...

 

Any ideas?

 

Regards,

Thomas

Re: Debug Download failed to SP601 board

Hi,

 

I have the error message:

 

---------------------------

.gdbinit: No such file or directory.
Ignoring packet error, continuing...
Ignoring packet error, continuing...

---------------------------

 

I'm using XPS 12.2, so the error should be solved.

 

 

Does anyone know a workaround?

Re: Debug Download failed to SP601 board

Hello!

 

I had the same problem. To resolve it I did the following:

* Get the IP-adress of my machine, e.g. 192.168.101.103

* Right click on the .elf file that you want to debug and select Debug As -> Debug configurations

* Select the "Remote Debug" tab and check the "Connect to gdbserver on a different machine" checkbox

* Enter the IP Address that you determined above

* Press Apply and Debug

 

Unfortunately these steps have to be repeated every time your IP Address changes, e.g. after a reboot.

Any easier metho would be appreciated. Any suggestions?

You can use the hostname instead of the IP address.
