Thanks for the support.
As per your instruction i have done the following

1.we booted our i386(Target) with RedBoot.

2.Our host was on Linux.

3.We run GDB on the Host with following commands

   i)cd BASE_DIR/install/tests/kernel/v1_3_1/tests
   ii) i386-elf-gdb -nw thread_gdb
  iii) set remotebaud 38400
  iv) target remote /dev/ttyS1
        Got the response as 
        Remote debugging using /dev/ttyS1
        0x7f38 in ?? ( )
        at/opt/ecos/ecos-1.3.1/packages/hal/i386/pc/v1_3_1/src/hal_startup.c : 104
        104 }
  v) load
       Got the response as
       loading section  .text, size 0x6db4 lma 0x10000
       Ignoring packet error, continuing......
       Ignoring packet error, continuing......
       Ignoring packet error, continuing......

Note: We are using ecos version 1.3.1 So we dont have prebuilt in th BASE_DIR.
So we have given the path for cd    BASE_DIR/install/tests/kernel/v1_3_1/tests
We are having the prebuilt in the component repository and not in Build/install tree.

Kindly guide how to load and execute an ecos application using gdb.
Why we are  getting the ignoring packet error after load command??

Thnx in anticipation,
