Could you please explain what exactly you have in mind with using the
GDB/MI interface?

You are talking to GDB's  command  line  interface  here  (CLI,  also
called  console interpreter), which is the default interface for GDB.

You cannot use GDB/MI commands when talking to the CLI interface.  To
do  that,  you  must start GDB with the machine interface interpreter
(or  GDB/MI)  by  specifying  the  `-i'  or  `--interpreter'  startup
options. Please read the GDB manual for details.

Try something like

	arm-linux-gdb --interpreter mi nick_arm

Best regards,

Wolfgang Denk
