Zybo - Debugging with System Debugger (TCF)

Question

Hello guys,

I followed this tutorial "Embedded linux on zybo" http://www.instructables.com/id/Embedded-Linux-Tutorial-Zybo/

and everything works like a charm, I compiled the linux kernel and u-boot from digilent github, as a next step I said i'll be debugging Linux C apps.

I'm trying hard to debug a linux application coded in xilinx SDK (2015.1) according to the follwoing two links:

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/SDK_Doc/tasks/sdk_t_linux_application_debugging_system_debugger.htm

 

what happens that when i try to press Debug, i got in the debug perspective .. "Target does not support Processes service"

Am i supposed to use different Linux kernel (i.e. Petalinux) or Am is supposed to use different uramdisk ?

Please let me know what am i missing???

I solved that issue,

according to

http://www.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/xilinx14_7/SDK_Doc/tasks/sdk_t_linux_application_debugging_system_debugger.htm

and page 80 at this

http://china.xilinx.com/support/documentation/sw_manuals/petalinux2014_4/ug1144-petalinux-tools-reference-guide.pdf

the assumptions claim that you have "tcf-agent" running on target (i.e. zybo), the ramdisk i was using is the pre built one here

http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Build+and+Modify+a+Rootfs

the ramdisk shipped with petalinux zynq releases has tcf-agent and you can use it along with whatever image you compiled previously

http://www.wiki.xilinx.com/Zynq+2015.2+Release

if you prefer building your TCF-agent from scratch, you may try this

https://wiki.eclipse.org/TCF/Raspberry_Pi

Note that zynq machine is armv7l
