happily compiling kernels from 2.5 to 2.6 i finally wanted to give KGDB
a try as suggested often enough. but i fail to do this.

i tried different kernels:

vanilla 2.4.25, results are here:

i was looking for a kgdb patch on, but the latest
version there is KGDB 2.0.1-2.0.5, which is for linux-2.6.1 only. on i found a kgdb-1.9-for-2.4.25.patch.bz2,
applying cleanly, but still gives me errors and does not compile:

2.4.25-ben1 (updated daily via rsync), results are here:

again, i patched with kgdb-1.9-for-2.4.25.patch.bz2, giving me one
reject in kernel/Makefile.rej:

~  obj-$(CONFIG_PM) += pm.o
+ obj-$(CONFIG_KGDB) += kgdbstub.o

results are here:

2.6.5-rc3-ben0 (updated daily via rsync), results are here:

i was not able to apply the patches from KGDB 2.0.1-2.0.5 nor the
patches from
(lots of rejects...details needed?)

so i my kernels still lack proper kgdb support :-(
any hints?

powerpc-linux-ld -V
GNU ld version 2.14 20030612

powerpc-linux-gcc --version

(crosscompile toolchain under x86, running debian/unstable)

Thank you,

BOFH excuse #258:

That's easy to fix, but I can't be bothered.
