I have now successfully build GDB-4.18 for linux/ppc.
Both target and host are powerpc-linux.
When I was trying to run a executable in my target
hardware(8xx) with gdb(target for exec),
 e.g. hello,
GDB said
Starting program: ./hello
Don't know how to run.  Try "help target".
    1. what's going on it?
    2. Does(Did) anyone do the same thing?
    3.The cross-debugger + target gdb server with a serial connection
         is the unique choices?
    4. I wonder which is the best way to debug a linux/ppc application
        on the embedded platform.
    5. What do you think a full host development environment
        (including native comilper,debugger etc) in the embedded

thank for any response.
