Debugging on an embedded system like a machine running LEAF is generally more difficult than on a fully-fledged Linux distribution, since system resources like RAM and disk space are at a premium and some of the standard debugging tools are not available.
This Chapter provides guidelines on what tools are available and what alternative approaches can be used.
There is a specific Package aimed at Bering-uClibc 4.x developers:
This Package implements the following utilities to assist with software development and debugging:
- Print shared library dependencies
- Display information from object files
- Trace system calls and signals
- Draw a process tree based on strace output
