1.1.94 and xxgdb problem

Post by Edmar Wienskos » Wed, 08 Mar 1995 00:57:46



xxgdb (don't know version, it came from slackware 2.1.0)
doesn't load programs anymore.
I am running kernel 1.1.94 (compiled with gcc 2.6.2).

If I change to a backup kernel 1.1.81 (compiled with gcc 2.5.8)
it works.

which one is the buggy one ? (gcc, kernel or xxgdb)

P.S.: In both cases the "file" button in xxgdb gives segment violation.

1. 1.1.45 -| 1.1.94 zImage problem

| Upgrading from 1.1.45 -|  1.1.94 seems to do
| just fine with the make config; make dep; make clean;
| make zImage procedure
|
| BUT
|
| no zImage appears, just another big vmlinux file.
| Which, of course, lilo complains is to big!

| What did I do wrong?

Same thing I did.  I didn't read all the release notes to find out that
the kernel moved.  I didn't look for it somewhere else.  In fact I even
failed to look carefully at the make/compile output just a few lines above.

I was told to find it in /usr/src/linux/arch/i386/boot/zImage and voila!
there it was!

And it makes sense to have it there, too.  That way you can (in the coming
future) compile for multiple platforms and not have kernel images get mixed
up.  Those doing the pre-alpha development now probably needed this just
to get the ports ramped up into the current levels.  Some of the code is
apparently even there already.
