I am porting the MIPS/Linux version of the Linux kernel to a IDT79S145
board. This board has a
IDT64475 (MIPS). I would like to use a standard serial port as a kgdb port. I
will use my other serial port for the
console port. Could you provide any additional information regarding the kgdb
interface? Is kgdb a standalone
application that would need to be built on the host to access a target board or
it a patch to the kernel files that needs
to built into the kernel running on the host?
