  • jlink-3.78c - w/gdbserver - dies a horrible death and goes 'ker-plop'


    there are problems with the new version of jlink software. It crashes and exits. :(

    I have:

    SEGGER J-Link GDB Server V3.78c
    JLinkARM.dll V3.78c (DLL compiled Dec 13 2007 20:28:39)
    J-Link connected
    Firmware: J-Link compiled Dec 03 2007 17:15:31 ARM Rev.5
    Hardware: V5.20
    S/N: 20002799
    Feature(s): RDI
    Listening on TCP/IP port 2331

    J-Link found 1 JTAG device, Total IRLen = 4
    JTAG ID: 0x3F0F0F0F (ARM7)
    SAM-ICE found !

    I am using this version of GDB (from linux, gdbserver is running on my windows PC)

    Using GDB (insight) 6.7.1 -
    GNU gdb 6.7.1

    This GDB was configured as "--host=i686-pc-linux-gnu --target=arm-elf".

    From GDB, I can *CONNECT* to the board.
    However, if I attempt to "download" - I get 2 or 3 messages then it dies/crashes/whatever - the GDBServer goes away, it dies very fast - I cannot tell if there are 2 or 3 messages. The previous version V 3.68B - works, and does not have this problem.

    The "log" file it creates useless, and does not contain anything meaningful.
    It shows the two write packets - to memory, and ends.

    I am sure you want the elf file to try your self, who should I send it to?

    Target is atmel at91sam7ex256.

  • Hello Duane,

    We have built a new beta version of the J-Link GDB Server
    which can generate a detailed logfile.

    The new beta version is available for download from our website:

    Can you please download this version and
    send us the GDB logfile ?

    To generate a GDB logfile please enable the
    "Generate logfile" checkbox in the GDB Server

    You will find the logfile in the program folder of
    the GDB Server. It is named "JLinkGDB.log".

    Best regards,
