M523evb, gdb, dBug and Multilink

I am trying to get my M5235evb board debugged under Linux and run a uClinux platform on it. I followed an example that basically uses the Codesourcery sprite to connect the P&E multilink cable. The example uses dBug to init the processor and then it loads the program , in my case the image.elf.

I am not sure if the dBug also starts at address 0x400, but from comparing the dBug link specs (it uses M5208evb) of both boards it seemed like 0x400 is the starting address.

This is what happens when I run the gdb:

When I set to start the dBug after the sprite Multilink connection and board reset nothing happens. Thus I am wondering if 0x400 is really the starting address of the dBug.


Any ideas to what am I doing wrong?
