I would like to run a quick question past this news group. I am seeing
problems
with symbol generation on the mipsel cross compilation tools.  I am
using the XRAY debugger
with a Macgraigor EJTAG pod on a MIPS R4Kc (jade) core.  The XRAY
documentation says that it
should be able to recognize the symbols in an ELF executable.  The mips
tools (Cygnus GCC 2.9.x) that is
shipped with the development system has no problem generating symbols
that the XRAY debugger can recognize.  When I attempt to do  a similar
test with the SGI cross compiler tools, XRAY doesn't
recognize any of the symbols.  Here are the versions of the
cross-compiler tools that I am currently using...


       binutils-mipsel-linux-2.8.1-1
       egcs-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1
       egcs-c++-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1
       egcs-libstdc++-mipsel-linux-2.8.0-1
       egcs-objc-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1
       egcs-g77-mipsel-linux-1.0.3a-1


I am using the "-g" command to generate debugging information.

I appreciate any information that anyone might have on similar
situations.  Thank you in advance
