Neither crossdev nor Gentoo is a requirement. I wanted to make a
version of gdb for my host where the target is ARM. gdb would run on
my gentoo system to talk to gdbserver running on the gumstix. crossdev
just lets me make gdb easier for my x86_64 system.

I confess I am a little confused about the gentoo requirement you
mention below. I thought the bitbake system, which I have running
under Debian Etch (?) n a Parallel virtual on my Intel Mac, and which
successfully builds the basic gumstix image, is doing cross-compiling
to achieve that. So if it is building everything else cross to arm,
why not gdb and gdbserver?

You can use CF or MMC to copy if you have one of those boards.

I built gdb-server in OE:
http://www.nabble.com/debugging-apps-on-gumstix:-gdbserver--
td19465638.html

and then I used the crossdev facility in gentoo to build gdb on x86_64
(target arm). You need to be using gentoo for crossdev. crossdev works
pretty well.

hi I'm trying to get gdb going under OE on verdex 6lp. I don't
have a network
extension card for the gumstix board so ipkg seems to fail (ftp
fails).  is
there any other way of getting gdbserver / gdb built and
transferred to the
board?

i also tried 'bitbake gdb' and 'bitbake gdb-cross' but it didn't
seem to
have any effect.

thanks,

I had to do "ipkg update" first to update my package list. Then
"ipkg
install gdbserver" worked.

Then to start gdbserver:

"gdbserver localhost:2000 <some exec file name here>"

Next I have to locate and/or figure out how to build the cross
version of
gdb to run on the host. I found the recipes; now have to figure
out how to
get them to build.

I am taking notes and will give them to you when I have it working.

Has anyone been able to use gdb remotely (from host machine to
gumstix)
under OE? I found some terse instructions for use with build-
root, but
don't
see anything on the gumstix-OE wiki. It doesn't appear that
gdbserver is
included in the OE build by default.

I haven't tried to use it but you should have no issue installing
it:

root@gumstix-custom-verdex:~$ ipkg install gdbserver
Installing gdbserver (6.6-r3) to root...
Downloading
gdbserver_6.6-r3_armv
5te.ipk
Installing libthread-db1 (2.5-r7) to root...
Downloading
db1_2.5-r7_
armv5te.ipk
Configuring gdbserver
Configuring libthread-db1
root@gumstix-custom-verdex:~$

If it works for you could you keep track of the steps you took and
I'll add a how to for it?

Steve
