Description Andrew Overholt 2005-06-08 16:18:09 EDT
Description of problem:
CDT debugging doesn't work on ppc.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a new Managed Make C project (for example)
2. main.c (simple main loop with int i = 0; for (i = 0; i < 4; i++) {
printf("%d\n", i); }; return 0
3. save & wait for build
4. right-click on resulting binary and try to debug as local c/c++ application
Actual results:
GDB Debugger (time and date)
Unable to set temporary break point in main.
Reason:  Target request failed:  Target is not responding (timed out).
Continue?  (y/n)

In console log:
Warning: /home/overholt/workspaces/test1234/TestC/-r: No such file or directory.
info threads
No registers.

Expected results:
Switch to debug perspective and debug (like on x86).

Additional info:
This might be some weird ppc-only mis-compilation of the o.e.debug* jars (since
we currently have the CDT jars all not natively-compiled due to some
mis-compilations there).

I assume this was on FC4. This needs to be re-tested on FC5 and FC6.
Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 12:12:26 EDT
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

The process we're following is outlined here:

We will be following the process here:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/BugZappers/HouseKeeping to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
Comment 3 Andrew Overholt 2008-04-03 13:28:46 EDT
Since I don't have an up-to-date ppc Fedora box on which to test this, I'll
close it.
