SDE: gdb error Remote 'g' packet reply is too long

SDE: gdb error Remote 'g' packet reply is too long


I'm trying to use the SDE kit in version 6.1 on a Linux 64 bits host.

I built a test program, and want to run sde on it.

In one console:
gcc -O0 -ggdb3 test_aslr.c -o test_aslr
$ ~/INTEL-SDE/sde-external-6.1.0-2013-07-22-lin/sde64 -debug -- ./test_aslr
Application stopped until continued from debugger.
Start GDB, then issue this command at the (gdb) prompt:
target remote :44697

In another console:
$ gdb ./test_aslr
(gdb) target remote :44697
Remote debugging using :44697

I tried different versions (building with -m32, running sde instead of sde64, running a 32 bits gdb, etc.) without success.

Is there a known solution ?

Hi, yes, thanks for reporting this.  We were aware of the issue and are hoping to release a new SDE & GDB that fixes this issue in a week or two.  Please check back and watch for updates.

Hi, we posted Intel SDE version 6.7 today and a new version of GDB (on the main sde page). Please give it a try.
