i'm using Xilinx Kernel (2.6.33) on a PPC405 (ML403) and I'm having
problem using gdb. I created a hello world application and it runs fine.
However, i'm not able to debug any application. I'm using gdb from ELDK
4.2. Here is what I get while running gdb from the target:

# gdb hello

Using host libthread_db library "/lib/libthread_db.so.1".
(gdb) set arch auto
The target architecture is set automatically (currently powerpc:common)
(gdb) run
Starting program: /apps/hello

Then, gdb (and the processor) hangs. The same behaviour arises when
using gdbserver on the target with gdb on the host. Any help is very
