SubjectDebugging modules with kgdb - single stepping issues
Date
Hi,

I'm not sure if kernel debugger issues are inappropriate on this
list, but I'd think most of you would have used kgdb at one time
or another.

I have a kgdb setup (kernel 2.4.18-5 patched with the 2.4.18 kgdb)
and I'm debugging a module. I notice that I can add break points,
and stop execution, however I'm not able to step into the code.
The module has been compiled with gdb symbols (-g). I've used the
loadmodule.sh script to load the module. I'm using the gdb (5.2.1).

One thing to note though, is I'm debugging a DRM kernel module which
resides it's own Xfree tree. But it's a kernel module and I don't believe
that should be the problem.

Any thoughts? What am I missing? I'd appreciate any suggestions!

Please CC your replies as I'm not subscribed to the list.

Thanks,
Bhavana
