I am trying to port eCos to a QED RM 5231 with a custom evaluation board.

I think I have gdb_module.bin correctly running, as it gives the


When I try to load a program via gdb:

[root@lx39 examples]# mips64vr4300-elf-gdb -nw hello

1. What is causing the message: No symbol "mips" in current context.
   I thought I included all the patches.

2. For the MIPS, what is the most stable version of egcs and gdb?  Do I
   still need to use the snapshots?

3. I appears that gdb is communicating with the target.  Any ideas on
   what is causing the packet errors?  Could it be a byte ordering issue?
