Re: arm-eabi-gdb

Dear Graham,

I recommend you to use JTAG debugging - you will spend a lot of time.

I did not have mincom running.
I type arm-eabi-gdb -nw
at the gdb prompt
set remotebaud 38400
target remote /dev/ttyS0

After this according to the ecos documentation I should see some
about the current loaction and language.

What I get is
Remote Debugging using /dev/ttyS0
0x08003b3a in ?? ()

I dont get any extra information.

It looks as though GDB has attached and you are sitting at the current PC.

Is this a problem?

No, not necessarily. You may well be sitting in Redboot also, which GDB knows nothing about in terms of symbols (since you haven't told it about them yet).

I don't mean this in any kind of an insulting way, but do you know how to use
GDB for something like this (eg. are you familiar with add-symbol-file)?
Did you build the tests with debugging enabled (eg. -g)?

Again, because there isn't really a ton of info here, I can't just look at it
and say "Ah ha!  The problem is [whatever]"
