Can't add breakpoints on OpenCL kernels (SIGPIPE)

I'm trying to debug my OpenCL application but whenever I try to run the application with a breakpoint in an OpenCL kernel, it just stops with a SIGPIPE error. I then tried the AMDTeaPot demo, and the same thing happened. I'm attaching the two log files I get when I try to add a breakpoint to an OpenCL kernel with the AMDTeapot demo.


My setup is:

GPU AMD RadeonHD 7990 with fglrx driver version 14.10

OS: A fresh installation of Ubuntu 64 Trusty (14.04)

CodeXL version x86_64_1.4.5728



Anyone knows how to solve this? Or maybe suggest a good Linux environment/distro to debug OpenCL?


Thank you...


Quick update:


Accordingly to the Release Notes for the AMD Catalyst Driver 14.6, this is the version supported for Ubuntu 14.04 (AMD Catalyst™ 14.6 Beta for Linux). I removed the old driver (14.4) and installed the new 14.6, but the same problem remains.
