gdb problem in cygwin

Started by vineet jain February 4, 2006
Hello all,
I was starting the debugger under cygwin using the following command :

arm-elf-gdb uart.out

It gave the following error :

This application has failed to start because cygncurses-8.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

Please help!!!!

Cheers,
Vineet.

I had a similar problem with one particular gnuarm installation. All the
dll's it complained were not found were actually in the package but not in a
directory that was automatically included in the path. Is the offending dll
on your machine? If so just make sure it can be located.

Are you using the gnuarm installation? If so then you don't need to run it
from within a cygwin shell.

Hello again,
yes i am using the GNUARM toolchain. I was actually going thru Bill Gatliff's tutorials where he explains how i could activate the debugger. So I wanted to try the command line debugger from cygwin. Else how do I invoke the simulator from the Eclipse IDE???

I have never used Eclipse or read this tutorial, so don't want to confuse
things by contradicting what it says in the tutorial, but....

I just type "arm-elf-insight myprog.elf" from a DOS prompt, then set the
target to simulator.
