You probably don't have to do anything with the boot1.img.tns, it's not compressed. You can just rename it to boot1.raw

Sorry for my bad English

If you hold down a key on the PC for a short time (for example down key), very fast response emulator, you must wait ...

as you can fix it?

Is it possible to use GDB with nspire_emu on GNU/Linux?
Nspire_emu just crashes right after entering "target remote localhost:8000" in the GDB prompt when I try to follow the directions here. (I'm using 8000 because the /G=1000 switch gives an error message when running nspire_emu.exe)

Being under 1024, 1000 is a privileged port, so you cannot bind to it as easily as ports above 1024 (needs more privileges) :)
And yup, I use nspire_emu and its GDBstub exclusively under Wine under Linux, even if it's not very stable - crashes do occur, as you're experiencing.

Now I'm having some success, the nspire_emu doesn't crash, but it freezes after entering "target remote localhost:1024" (I'm trying port 1024 now), so I can't start the program in the emulator (using nTxt as an example)
I compiled it with "-O0 -g" in the GCCFLAGS.

This is the output of nspire_emu:

Ah, so you actually want to debug a C / C++ program through GDB, not just use the GDBstub to benefit from an external GDB-interoperable debugger instead of the built-in debugger...
I've never done that, and from my work on forward-porting the GDBstub from Ncubate to nspire_emu, I'm not quite sure it's supposed to work (it requires extra support in the debugger, which wasn't updated for Ndless 3.1, IIRC).

Well, http://hackspire.unsads.com/wiki/index.php/Debugging_programs says that Ncubate had support for GDB, so I assumed it would work in Nspire_emu.

It worked at some point and in some conditions, but the page indicates:

This page was last modified on 7 November 2010, at 19:56.
That was in the time of the second generation of Ndless, long before the release of OS 3.1 and the later release of Ndless 3.1.
I'm not authoritative enough on the matter for stating that it definitely does not work with Ndless 3.1, but I'd expect it not to... Sorry.

The GDB stub should work well, but the integration with the Ndless loader seems indeed to have been broken at some point, I'm sorry about that. I'll see what has gone wrong.

Legimet, everything has been fixed in the latest Ndless/SDK: http://ndlessly.wordpress.com/2013/07/18/gdb-debugging-now-available/
I'm not able to test in on Linux though.

I will soon install Ndless r848 in nspire_emu, and the Ndless SDK to see if it works.

EDIT: What commands have to be run in GDB?? Nspire_emu gives a segmentation fault, but I might be doing something wrong

Yes, it works now in r866 using the included nspire_emu.exe. :D

And this is unrelated, but in the nspire-gcc, nspire-g++, nspire-ld, and nspire-ld-bflt scripts, could you change $USERPROFILE in the last line (where gcc or g++ is called) to $home so Linux users can put static libraries in .ndless too?

This message is for Goplat and SpiroH, my humble contribution to these great emulators.

Testing nSpire_emu and kArmTI with some different ROMs I have found a problem emulating the CX prototype. Boot1CX-3.0.0.DEVBUILD rises a warning in the emulator and it breaks:
Code: [Select]
Boot Loader Stage 1 (3.00.DEVBUILD)
Build: 2010/9/14, 16:30:29
Copyright (c) 2006-2010 Texas Instruments Incorporated
Using developer keys

Last boot progress: 65
Warning at PC=00007718: Bad write_byte: 0001c634 00
debug> c

 I have to press c for continue the execution as a workaround.

Last night user fortytwo, in the IRC channel, helped on solving this issue. He changed line 47 of emu.c initializing the boolean break_on_warn flag as false in order to run smoothly. Maybe the emulator could include another command line argument such as /W in order to activate break_on_warn flag from the command line.

fortytwo compiled a test version and it runs smoothly.

The other issue I have is related to the Diags ROM. It can be executed using the following command line:

Code: [Select]
nspire_emu.exe /1=boot1cx.tns  /MX /PD=diagscx.tns
I can not go down and test other systems than memory. And when testing memory it reports a failure in the emulated flash. Is it a failure of the emulator or am I not configuring it correctly?

Thanks

Boot1
