What you got is the ELDK 4.2 release, from here:


The ELDK 4.1 release can be found here:


Alternatively, you can just download and test the GDB form that
relase, i. e. like that:

-> cd /tmp
-> wget ftp://ftp.denx.de/pub/eldk/4.1/ppc-linux-x86/distribution/RPMS/gdb-ppc-
-> rpm2cpio gdb-ppc- | cpio -idum

Then try and run /tmp/usr/bin/ppc-linux-gdb (after making sure thet
CROSS_COMPILE is set correctly).

I bet ths works fine...

Best regards,
