Hi everybody!
 
I need some help to be able to run my system.
 
I am using a MCF5484 Lite evaluation board and I am going to use Linux as the operating system. I had   luck and could use the LTIB tool for this processor, that enables me to obtain easily the linux kernel image (kernel 2.6.25). I launched the system from U-Boot and I checked that all was OK.
 
I took the toolchain for this processor from Codesourcery (Sourcery G++ Lite 4.2.-25). Through the gdbserver and using Eclipse I can debug applications. But I also need to debug the kernel to add new drivers and other features. Using the Codesourcery Toolchain and by means of a P&E BDM device it should  be posible to debug the Linux kernel. I have two of these BDM devices: ParallelPortCable and USBMultilink, but I am not sucessful.
 
Does anyone have experience debugging the Linux kernel with this P&E BDM?
 
Any help will be welcome
Thanks in advance.
