Re: JTAG debug support for ARM

There is nothing illegal about this site.   I have done most
of the Linux and Solaris code on this site.   If you doubt
this, ask them at their regular site
The Wiggler is not supported under Linux and Solaris.
The Wiggler is supported under Windows.   Under Linux
and Solaris the Raven and Ethernet products are supported.
The site is still a work in progress so everything is not
there yet but keep checking.
