This should have gone to the QtCreator list. My apologies to this list.

@David M. Cotter What version of QtCreator are you using? Maybe I just need to remove all the preferences for older versions that may be hanging around.

I’m running on a 2021 MacBook Pro with the M1 Max (arm)


I debug daily on it but it’s a bit touchy (debugger crashes often, app hangs for no reason and debugger can’t break into it, sometimes breakpoints fail etc)


But it DOES work. For me.

Is there a version of QtCreator where the lldb debugger can launch on macOS ARM64. I’m running macOS Big Sur (11.x) and when I try to debug I get the following error from the debugger:


"error: process exited with status -1 (attach failed ((os/kern) invalid argument))"}


I am running Qt Creator version 4.15 since that seems to be the only viable version. I tried version 6.0.2 but the code completion is broken. The engine I am assuming is just utterly broken. My source code is filled with error markers although the code compiles fine. Which is why I dropped back to the tried-and-true version 4.15.

Does anyone else use macOS ARM machines for daily debugging? I was getting ready to switch over to an M1 based machine but if I can’t debug that could be seen as an “issue”.
