 I saw the FAQ for remote debugging with kgdb.
The problem at my end is like this:-
1. the netbsd is running on a controller that boots
off flash, and gets the ip through dhcp and then does
the ftp/tftp to get the kernel image. the processor is
a powerpc chip.
2. the kernel is built on a G4 running netbsd. the
kernel image is different on the G4 as compared to
that ont the controller because the former is a
full-fledged workstation and the latter is an embedded
3. the connection between the 2 is an ethernet port.
(its the same one that is used to get the ip address
from dhcp server running on the G4). note that this
ethernet port is directly connected to the G4 and
there are some more ethernet ports on the device.
I need advice in determining if:-
(a) remote debugging is possible in this scenario and
(b) how do I go about doing it.
