LOW-low level debugging

LOW-low level debugging

Post by Breton M. Saunder » Thu, 06 Apr 2000 04:00:00

Hello All,

  I've got an annoying problem:  My linux laptop crashes when running
XFree86 4.0.  The problem is that the machine totally locks up.  I am
fairly confident that the problem lies in the *9397 driver causing a
bus lock-up.

  I want to debug this problem, because I am sick and tired of waiting
for e2fsck.

  On the Amiga I used to be able to load a de* and invoke it
through a NMI.  Is there anything similar for linux, so that after my
computer is totally shafted I can interrupt the machine and get the
processor doing something again (like running a de*)?

  Where can I find information on low level debugging of device drivers?



1. Solaris on x86: LOW LOW LOW PRICES

Solaris on x86: LOW LOW LOW PRICES

for the best prices on all x86 based SunSoft products.  Such as:

* Netra
* NSolaris
* Solstice
* SolarNet
* etc.

Turn that old x86 box into a powerful SUN workstation.  
Remember 95% of all Sparc-based SunSoft products also runs on x86.
