I recently installed openssl package on the armv7 target I’m working on. After the install I now get a window within VS2010 indicating a SIGILL signal was received. From my research this is a known issue with openssl and ARM 7 platforms. The suggested workaround is to use the “handle SIGILL nopass noprint nostop” command within gdb to remove that signal. Even though the command was successful VisualGDB continues to present the dialog box indicating the signal has occurred. Is there any way to stop this behavior?
Normally the command should work (unless you enter it in the “additional gdb commands” and your debug preferences override it). Either way, the recommended way of handling this is using the “Interrupts” window of VisualGDB (click the lightning icon in the GDB Session window). VisualGDB will let you modify signal handling from there and will also remember the settings for the next debug session.
