Hello everyone,

I have been trying to install insight on my ubuntu (10.04 lts) host
machine to debug my Beagleboard Xm which is running GDBserver.

When I originally tried to setup GDB/GDBServer using code sourcery I
was getting an error when connection that reply packet was malformed.
So I swapped across to use Open embedded as I had used that for my
rootfs and then it worked. However I would actually like to use
insight instead of command line GDB and I cant find a bitbake recipie
to build it and when I try to compile it myself I get the malformed
packet error again.

The versions I am using is gdb-7.1.tar.gz, insight-6.8-1.tar.bz2

The I have tried it with a few different sets of arguments, the
arguments I used to build it myself are
configure --host=arm-linux --prefix=/opt/gdebug
configure --host=arm-angstrom-linux-gnueabi --prefix=opt/gdebug
configure --host=arm-none-linux-gnueabi --prefix==opt/gdebug

Also I have tried to use GDBserver built with both code sourcery and
openembedded to see if it made any difference but it didnt help me.

It may also be worth mentioning that like the advice given on the
pages for these tools I am building in a seperate directory to the one
in which I extracted the source.
If anyone could point me in the right direction I would really
appreciate it.

Many thanks
