I am trying to set up a coding environment where I can code and cross-compile with NetBeans on a development machine, but debug the program on a remote machine. I have set up a cross-compiling toolchain that seems to work fine, but I am having problems getting debugging to work how I want it to. I changed the run command to a small shell script:

scp done/app root@
ssh root@ gdbserver --debug :6000 /root/app

Which copies the compiled project to the target machine, then runs the app with gdbserver attached to it. Then, I can use the gdbserver plugin to attach to the gdbserver running on the target machine.

With this setup, I am able to set breakpoints in NetBeans on the development machine, and they stop the program running on the target machine correctly. The problem is that I don't get any of the output from the compiled project, only the output of gdbserver. This setup also does not exit nicely. Sometimes gdbserver is still running after execution, and other times it exits properly, but NetBeans still thinks the program is running.

Am I doing something wrong? Is there a better way to do this?

Thank you,
