 I need to enable GDB/MI commands with ELDK 4.1 debigger for ARM , I am
doing remote debugging on an ARM board , and I have compiled a gdbserver
running on my target , right now I am not able to run the GDB/MI commands
because if I try to type some command GDB does not recognise it . I will
paste the error below.
