#bluetoothmesh #nrf52840 strange debug error when using arm-none-eabi-gdb #bluetoothmesh #nrf52840


Hi guys here, I'm a newbie to Zephyr ble mesh and I have already built and ran the examples provided by zephyr successfully. However, when it comes to debugging the application, there is strange behavior which confused me a lot. I use arm-none-eabi-gdb tool and nrf52840 board, after I load the zephyr.elf file and connect to the gdb server and type continue, errs printed out as follow
[bt] [ERR] radio_event_adv_prepare: assert: '!_radio.ticker_id_prepare' failed
***** Kernel OOPS! *****
Current thread ID = 0x20001d0c
Faulting instruction address = 0x1eed4
Fatal fault in ISR! Spinning...
I try to type continue first and reset the board, seems the application runs well. But what still bothered me a lot is that all breakpoints seem not working as expected, in other words, the breakpoints are all set correctly but the application won't stop. Maybe the root cause is the strange behavior mentioned above?
