I recently tried to update my BlackFin Toolchain from version 2013 to version 2014 and encounter a problem. The new debugging tool bfin-elf-gdb can't be executed on linux: "cannot execute binary file: Exec format error".


I guess this is a mistake and will be corrected soon, right? If not please explain why this is correct and how I should use this tool now.


I'm using Ubuntu 14.04 and Eclipse Kepler. I downloaded the archive

  • release 2014
  • gcc version 4.3
  • platform x86_64
  • archive version .tar.bz2
