Could you please add gdb to the v2016.12 opkg feed?

I see that gdbserver is there, but not gdb.


Unfortunately we can’t. We merely provide a mirror of what’s available from the Angstrom project which currently does not provide gdb for the target.

You could try to use gdb from the 2015.12 feeds by adding these and their architecture to opkg’s configuration:

root@colibri-imx6:/etc/opkg# diff arch.conf.orig arch.conf

Better still, build your tailored image with openembedded.


Thanks, Max. Modifying the opkg configs worked. This way, I can keep non-release-build stuff out of the image.
