    Hello,

    I already wrote to sysprogs support but they answered me:

    —————————————————————————————————————

    Hi,

    Unfortunately due to limited resources we cannot provide support for non-Sysprogs products.
    Please consider asking at the forums and mailing lists to get advice from the community.

    <hr />

    … so I am here.

    This is my issue:

     

    I have already crosscompiled Qt Embedded 5.5 for Raspberry Pi 2 (RPi3) by your tutorial (http://visualgdb.com/tools/QtCrossTool/).

    The crosscompile works well but I have problem with debugging. I don’t know what file Qt needs to set up. I tested it on Raspbian and Ubuntu MATE but both have the same problem.

    I need it in Qt Creator, not Visual Studio like in tutorial.

    I tried:

    GDB’s in crosscompile directory:

    SysGCC\Raspberry\bin\arm-linux-gnueabihf-gdb.exe - Gives mi error - "The selected build of GDB doesn not support Python scripting. It cannot be used in Qt Creator".
    
    SysGCC\MinGW32\bin\gdb.exe - Gives mi error - "The selected build of GDB doesn not support Python scripting. It cannot be used in Qt Creator".
    

    Qt GDB C:\Qt\Tools\mingw491_32\bin\gdb.exe

    Listening on port 10010

    A handler for the OS ABI “GNU/Linux” is not built into this configuration

    of GDB. Attempting to continue with the default i386 settings.

    Remote debugging from host 10.21.1.241

    Process /home/enwox/Desktop/AttendanceTerminal/AttendanceTerminal created; pid = 3944

    A handler for the OS ABI “GNU/Linux” is not built into this configuration

    of GDB. Attempting to continue with the default i386 settings.

    Architecture rejected target-supplied description

     

    … And timeout shows up after some time. Could you help me somehow? I was finding an answer for a long long time and I still don’t get it. I’m sure You know how important debugging is 🙂 .

     

    Thanks

    Had the same problem some time ago. You have to compile GDB yourself. Thats how I did it:

    Install MinGW the normal distro you can’t use the one you used to compile qt, I don’t know why. They don’t work together so uninstall the other one before. Link: http://www.mingw.org/

    Download qt-creator source. Link: https://github.com/qtproject/qt-creator

    Modify \dist\gdb\Makefile.mingw add a new target: targets=arm-none-eabi,arm-none-linux-gnueabi,i686-pc-mingw32,arm-linux-gnueabihf

    In \dist\gdb\ run make -f Makefile.mingw

    Now you have your gdb for windows.

    Hope I could help you.

    Thank You for your reply,
    I have installed MinGW distro from your web, it’s g++ version 6.1.0 now.
    I downloaded qt-creator source, changed makefile.mingw file and tried to run make -f, but MinGW type:

    C:\Users\Tom\Desktop\crossdebug_mingw\qt-creator-master\qt-creator-master\dist\gdb>make -f Makefile.mingw
    The syntax of the command is incorrect.
    make: *** [Makefile.mingw:24: makesourcedir] Error 1
    
    C:\Users\Tom\Desktop\crossdebug_mingw\qt-creator-master\qt-creator-master\dist\gdb>

    Do you know what to do with this?

    I downloaded another version of MinGW and I have this issue now:
