I am bringing up the Yagarto ARM-GCC environment for use with an Atmel
SAM-ICE and AT91-SAM7X card.  I have the Yagarto tools and Eclipse
installed, but I do not seem to have the Zylin plugin.

refer to the Zylin plugin, but I do not see obvious instructions how to
get it.  The zylin web site has some products for sale, but I don't see

debug my target board.

Thank you.

Hi Giovanni,

Thanks for your help.  I followed those instructions and got a little
further.  At first, I go an error that the update could not find the
repository, but I got around that by temporarily disabling my firewall.
Then eclipse seemed OK with it, but I'm still not sure the CDT for GDB
debugging is really working.

In the Atmel instructions for GNU-based software development, it says I
should see "Embedded Debug (Native)" as one of the choices in the Debug
Configuration, but that still doesn't show up.  I think the Zylin CDT
was to have provided this configuration to gdb.

What do you think?

Happy New Year!

Howie.

Happy new year to you too :)

Yes, indeed you should see "Zylin Embedded debug (Cygwin)" and "Zylin
Embedded debug (native)" under "Debug Configurarions...". BTW, you
should use the correct one, "Native" for the YAGARTO toolchain and
"Cygwin" for the toolchains compiled under Cygwing or you will have
problems with paths.

Are you sure the plugin is installed? it is not enough that repository
shows in the list, you have to select it and press the "Install..."
button.

If it is correctly installed you should see "Zylin Embedded CDT" under

Giovanni,

The Zylin plugin is not installed.  I went back to the Software Updates
page, but the repository is again not being found, even with my Windows
firewall turned off.  Do you know if that web site is still active?

From an Internet Explorer, I can visit the
"http://www.zylin.com/zylincdt/"; web site, which displays this message:
"See http://www.zylin.com/embeddedcdt.html for instructions on how to
install Zylin Embedded CDT."
I cannot get the Refresh to work from the Software Updates and Manage
Sites screens within Eclipse.

Thanks,
Howie.

I just retested it, it is working.

Are you behind a proxy? if so you configure eclipse to use the proxy
when accessing the files via HTTP.
I had to do that on my corporate workstation because we are behind a
central proxy there.

The proxy can be configured in
Window->Preferences->Genral->NetworkConnections.

regards,
Giovanni

Giovanni,

Yes.  The proxy was the issue.  I got some help setting the proxy info
and I have now got the Zylin plugin installed!  I verified that a native
embedded Debug Configuration could be created.  I have some debug
issues, but I'll investigate further and save that for another thread.

Howie.

Did you specify the debug options on the compiler command line ? It
should be -ggdb if I remember well. Without that the debugger cannot
locate the source files and the line numbers for breakpoints.

Giovanni I put this command in the copiler command as i atthached, the
text Using Source Tools for AT91SAM7S Cross Development wrote by James
P. Lynch tell about it and every configuration you need to do, i follow
everything but i think that He forgot to tell something or i have some
problem that i did'd find out.

Hello,

crashes for some reason at the location 0x6c010000 (not in ram nor in
flash space). For some reason you program jumps there and is trapped
with a bus error.

No source means that there is no source associated with code at that
location and the debugger has nothing to show.

I would verify if the flash is correctly programmed. You should also
show me the commands in the "main", "commands", "source" and "common"
tabs, the panel you show me seems to be correct. If you want I can show
you the configuration I use with the SAM7X256, the SAM7S should be very
similar or equal.

Hello Giovanni

I tried to debug another program and now i get success, I think that the
problem was the hardware I'm using, perhaps the AT91SAM7S256 can't be
used to debug the program done by James P. Lynch, because I'm used a
program specified to AT91SAM7S256 and worked. What do you think about?

It is possible that the problem was related to the sample application
(things like PLL initialization, stack size, startup code etc) rather
than the debugger setup.

Anyway I am glad now you have a base to work on, the first step is
always the hardest one.
