Re: Regarding ICE/IDE for use while porting NetBSD onto PowerPC based board

Hi Yogi,

We previously also used VisionProbe for debugging our powerpc-cards but we were very unhappy with it. After that we got an Abatron BDI2000 (http://www.abatron.ch/BDI/bdihw.html) that we are very content with. It has a simple telnet command line interface and you can also connect gdb to it. We have only used it when developing our bootloader and for programming flash memory. It could be a bit tricky to get it to work for kernel-debbuging since the kernel runs with the MMU on. There is a section in the manual on how to do it for linux-kernels so maybe it is possible to adapt that to get it to work with NetBSD.

 Some time back when we ported pSOS+ to one of the PowerPC based board we
used VisionProbe(debugger, IDE) & JTAG interface for debugging. Similarly
what will be the debugging tool/software & devices we have to use here...?
The Board supports JTAG interface.

 Is that debugger available in NetBSD, i,e in netbsd.org...?

Thanks in advance for any inputs.
