Well, if you intend to use a cross-debugger eventually, it's probably
best to start out with one now. They don't need as much support for the
host as a native debugger, and so are more likely to build. In the case
of MinGW, this is particularly true.
If the debugger does not yet support your target then just pick a random
target and pipe-clean your build with that. Some have issues of their
own, but most work.
Thanks for all the help. Sorry if I posted your email will be more
careful in the future. Is there a moderator here that can remove the
email address from my previous post?
No, once it's in the wild it's not retrievable.
See this absolutely hilarious attempt to get a message removed from the
