PANIC: unprotected error using the LUA debugger with Ubuntu 18.04

User Question :

When I attempt to start the LUA debugger in Storyboard 5.3 the following error is displayed on the console and I am unable to debug.

INFO [0.002]:Initialize plugin [lua (5.3.0.28994)] [dbg=/home/johnny/Crank_Software/Storyboard_Designer/plugins/com.crank.gdt.simulator.runtime.linux_5.3.0.201807051555/resources/lua/lua/debugger.lua,dbg_port=10000]
PANIC: unprotected error in call to Lua API (error loading module 'socket.core' from file '/home/johnny/Crank_Software/Storyboard_Designer/plugins/com.crank.gdt.simulator.runtime.linux_5.3.0.201807051555/resources/lua/socket/core.so':
/home/johnny/Crank_Software/Storyboard_Designer/plugins/com.crank.gdt.simulator.runtime.linux_5.3.0.201807051555/resources/lua/socket/core.so: wrong ELF class: ELFCLASS32)

Answer :

For the Lua Debugger x64 Panic issue ... rename the core.so libs located in ...

/home/johnny/Crank_Software/Storyboard_Designer/plugins/com.crank.gdt.simulator.runtime.linux_5.3.0.201807051555/resources/lua/socket/
/home/johnny/Crank_Software/Storyboard_Designer/plugins/com.crank.gdt.simulator.runtime.linux_5.3.0.201807051555/resources/lua/mime/

... then unpack the attached archive and copy the appropriate core.so libs from the archive to those above directories.

You will then need to create a new Debug Configuration.

1) Open the Debug Perspective
2) Click the drop down arrow to the right of the bug icon -> Debug Configurations
3) Right click on Lua Attach to Application -> New
4) Provide a unique name in the Name: field
5) Select your project under Project:
6) Apply -> Debug
7) Run your application using the Run icon (white arrow in a green circle)

  • Just wanted to note that as of version 6.0, the .so files are already 64-bit, so that step should no longer be necessary if you are using that version or higher.  But I've still had to manually create the debug configuration.

    I also have to manually launch the debugger every time I want to use it.
