Does anyone know whether there is some special setup needed on
gdb/gdbserver to use the multi-threaded gdbserver ??
Wow, there are so many things to tell you...where to start...
My environment is as follows:
CPU: NEC VR5432
kernel: linux-2.4.18 + patches
glibc: 2.2.3 + patches
gdb: 5.2/3 from CVS
Has to be the gdb-5.3 branch...go look at http://sources.redhat.com/gdb
binutils: Version 188.8.131.52.25
Don't use H.J. Lu's binutils, use the released one. Use gcc-3.2 and
binutils-2.13 as they have fixes for the MIPS debugging symbols with
regards to DWARF.
cross-gdb configured using:
configure --prefix=/usr --target=mipsel-linux --disable-sim
--disable-tcl --enable-threads --enable-shared
Use '--target=mips-linux' and you'll be better off. Don't worry, it
will support both endians.
gdbserver configured using:
configure --prefix=/usr --host=mipsel-linux --target=mipsel-linux
I would also try 'CC=mipsel-linux-gcc configure <...>'.
