Open source ARM Debugger

Hello,

Trying to setup openOCD on a STM32 F4 Discovery kit, I was faced with following errors (see listing next).

I currently use texane st-flash tool to flash the MCU, but st-util does not start, reporting an error (see issue https://github.com/texane/stlink/issues/322) on that same board.

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Marc

Please could somebody help, it is really frustrating to get stuck on setting up a dev environnement ? Thanks

I upgraded the ST Link firmware from Linux using the ST supplied Java package (V2.J17 => V2.J24). So it seems my hardware and Linux conf are OK.

However the problem remains the same:
