HowTo use the CDT to navigate Linux kernel source

Here are some steps that I've found to get the CDT to work well with the Linux kernel source. If you exclude some of these steps, it may still work to a large degree, but some things may not work exactly right; for example it may find the wrong include file for a C file.

Anyway, as you do these steps, I think you may understand how they assist the indexer to do a good job for the Linux kernel source.

Disclaimer: these steps were last updated for Eclipse Juno 4.2.2 + CDT 8.1.2, and originally developed for Eclipse 3.5.1 + CDT 6.0.0.

  1. Download and install Eclipse plus the CDT.
  2. Configure and build your kernel to define CONFIG_* and generate autoconf.h. This can be done before or after downloading and installing Eclipse.
  3. Ensure that you have the right kernel source (e.g. make sure you are on the right git branch). If you check out another branch later, that's ok, but you will need to re-index the source, and that takes about 20 minutes.
  4. Start up Eclipse.
  5. Click File->New->C Project
  6. Fill in a project name like my_kernel
  7. Uncheck the Use default location box and type in the root directory of your kernel into the Location box.
  8. In the Project type: pane, click the Makefile project and select Empty Project
  9. On the right side, select Linux GCC
  10. Click Advanced settings... and a Properties dialog will pop up.
  11. Open the C/C++ General selection on the left.
  12. Click on Preprocessor Include Paths
  13. Select GNU C in the Languages list
  14. Select CDT User Setting Entries in the Setting Entries list
  15. Click on Add.... Choose Preprocessor Macros File from the top left dropdown, Project Path from the top right dropdown, and enter "include/generated/autoconf.h" into the File text box. (Note: For kernels older than 2.6.33, the location of autoconf.h is include/linux/autoconf.h)
  16. Also add any other macros files you are using.
  17. Click on Indexer
  18. Checkmark the Enable project specific setttings box.
  19. Uncheck Index source files not included in the build
  20. Click on Paths and Symbols on the left.
  21. Select the Includes tab and then select GNU C
  22. Click Add...
  23. Click Workspace... then select your kernel's include, and include/uapi directories
  24. Do another Add, Workspace and add both arch/architecture/include, and arch/architecture/include/uapi directories. e.g., arch/powerpc/include and arch/powerpc/include/uapi (The UAPI directories are due to the kernel's user/kernel header split covered here in-detail)
  25. Click the # Symbols tab
  26. Click Add...
  27. Set the name to __KERNEL__
  28. Set the value to 1 and click OK
  29. Click the Source Location tab
  30. Click the plus sign next to your project name.
  31. Select the Filter item and click Edit Filter...
  32. Click Add Multiple... and then select all of the arch/* directories in your kernel source that will not be used (i.e. all the ones that are not for the architecture you are using)
  33. Click OK and OK again to dismiss that dialog.
  34. Under C/C++ General, select Preprocessor Include Paths, Macros etc.
  35. Click the Providers tab and select CDT GCC Built-in Compiler Settings
  36. Uncheck Use global provider shared between projects
  37. Add -nostdinc to the Command to get compiler specs
  38. Check Allocate console in the Console View so you can see that this is working
  39. Click OK on the Properties dialog.
  40. Click Finish on the C Project dialog.
  41. The Project will index automatically.
  42. On a platter drive indexing will take upwards of 20 minutes to complete, on a SSD indexing will take about 5 minutes to complete.

Notes:

  1. Adding include and arch/architecture/include only gets you a couple of the common include paths. To fully index all of the kernel, you would have to add dozens of paths, unfortunately. For this reason, I advise against using PTP's remote indexing capability for the linux kernel, because what happens is that it will report thousands of errors in locating header files, and the process of reporting those errors over a possibly long-latency link, will cause the indexing to take many hours.
  2. If you change any of your CONFIG_* settings, in order for Eclipse to recognize those changes, you may need to do a "build" from within Eclipse. Note, this does not mean to re-build the index; this means to build the kernel, by having Eclipse invoke make (this is normally bound to the Ctrl-B key in Eclipse). Eclipse should automatically detect changes to include/generated/autoconf.h, reread the compilation #defines it uses, and reindex.
  3. The background color of "Quick Context View" will be dark if the Ambiance theme in Ubuntu is selected.
  4. For some people, Eclipse may fail to index the kernel with a out of memory error. The fix seems to be to start eclipse with the arguments: eclipse -vmargs -Xmx650M
