Vim compiled with static python support + python included in gdb.

When running this command inside Vim: ConqueGdb test

  • new window is created
  • this is launched: gdb -f -x /home/user/.vim/bundle/Conque-GDB/autoload/conque_gdb/ -x /home/user/.vim/bundle/Conque-GDB/autoload/conque_gdb/gdbinit_confirm.gdb test - 1 [FORMAT=unix] [TYPE=] [100%][POS=0:0/1]
  • nothing in window pop ups (window is empty). --May 12, 2014

Installation problemEdit

Conque GDB does not support installation through Vim bundle.

Download the latest conque_gdb.vmb file and install using the installation instructions given at the scripts page in the link at the top. --May 17, 2014

not bundle installation I did as you said. I've deleted ~/.vim/bundle/Conque-GDB* and installed from conque_gdb.vmb.

When I run Vim I get following:

Error detected while processing function conque_gdb#load_python..<SNR>27_get_gdb_command..<SNR>27_get_unix_gdb:
line   10:
E484: Cannot open file /tmp/vosS3EQ/0

In Vim when I type :ConqueGdb I get the same result as described in "Problem".

I can get rid of this message when I change escaping to:

conque_gdb.vim:315    let l:gdb_py_support = system(l:gdb_exe . ' -q -batch -ex ''python print("PYYES")'' ')

--May 19, 2014

Question Can you give me the output of "gdb -v" and output of "vim --version"? What happens if you install conque gdb and no other plugins, e.g. with an empty .vim folder?

Answer Empting ~/.vim folder helped. While I still get this message

Error detected while processing function conque_gdb#load_python..<SNR>13_get_gdb_command..<SNR>13_get_unix_gdb:

when starting vim I get a gdb console in separate window when I type :ConqueGdb.

macVim provides python support. Python installed from port When running mvim -v main.cpp :

  • new window is created
  • this is launched:
File "<string>", line 1, in <module>File "/Users/UserName/.vim/autoload/conque_term/", line 48, in <module>import pty
File "/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/", line 9, in <module> from select import select
ImportError: dlopen(/opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/,
2): Symbol not found: __PyInt_AsInt
Referenced from: /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/
Expected in: flat namespace in /opt/local/Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/lib/python2.7/lib-dynload/
Press ENTER or type command to continue

then the command :ConqueGdb is recognized but nothing happens. --April 21, 2015
