I thought I would give the latest gdb(5.3) a spin and see if it could
interface with ST's gdb server to talk to my ICE. The original gcc is
Happy that it all built ok for my target system it fell over on startup
because the "fork" command used to lauch the gdbserver seems to of
fork shlaunch -si $arg0 -gdbserv host=$arg1 -cid0 host=$arg1
Is there a drop-in replacement? I greped the Changelogs but all the fork
references seem to be talking about debugged processes rather than
