The other thing is trying to debug with gdb. If I set a break point and
then try and continue past it, I get :
Program received signal SIGTRAP (5), Trace/BPT trap
at the same place a few times and eventually it will continue on. If I
try to single step, it will either hang or eventually (after a few minutes)
stop at another line - and not necessarily the next line. Is this something
in gdb or in the kernel?
break points and stepping on the sparc is basically broken. the way i
do things is set a break point at _every_ point i want to stop at,
whether it be a traditional break point, or somewhere i want to get to
via 'step' or 'next' in gdb.
it's really annoying, yeah.
