localhost:<port>. To connect a GDB Client run
gdb <app-binary> -ex 'target remote localhost:<port>'.
To analyze errors in memory access run
clickable desktop --valgrind.
Two terminals are required to do debugging on the device, one to start the
and the other one to start
gdb. In the first terminal run
and in the second one
clickable gdb. This method is limited to
apps that are started via their own binary file.
clickable gdbserver command provides the server at
localhost:3333. In theory
one could connect to that one from within any IDE. But to actually make it work, one needs
to provide the corresponding libc6 debug symbols. Otherwise the App won’t start due to a
