Hi Peter,

thanks for the reply.
My intention is learning the kernel. So, i want to know what happens in=
itially in the boot sequence.
I am having Dell Inspiron laptop. It doesnt have facility to connect to=
the docking station.

Could you give me some more pointers in setting up the VirtualBox + kgd=
b running in the guest OS, and then gdb in the host machine using named=
pipes.

thanks
Raju

Subject: Re: kgdg over ethernet


as u know, KGDB is an in-kernel debugger, as it modifies the linux kern=
el to be able to interact with serial port at an early stage of bootup.=
=A0 =A0but ethernet port setup takes place much later in the bootup se=
quence.   and so debugging over ethernet port is possible (netconso=
le, lookup kernel source's Documentation directory), but not when u wan=
t to know what is happening at an early stage.

if u just want to learn, I have done this before using VirtualBox + kgd=
b running in the guest OS, and then gdb in the host machine to connect =
to the guest via the serial port, or named pipes etc.

but if really need serial port, I am sure there exists a Docking statio=
n for your laptop....and it is hardware specific, so u have to go to th=
e specific hardware community to hunt for it. =A0 for example, mine is =
R400 Lenovo, so I found here:

http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/product-and-parts/detail.pag e?DocID=3DP=
D005598

where it mentioned how to get serial port (at least 3 different devices=
are available).

but if u are electronic-savvy, perhaps u can search for the schematic a=
nd attach the serial port yourself, for example, for my R400 the schema=
tic is (plus several other model as well) here:

Peter,

Me too curious to know and try to understand working of Linux Kernel
and implementation.
It would help many others in community trying to get into Kernel progra=
mming.

good.....there is a kernel parameter:

earlyprintk=3Dvga where u can put into your bootloader. see
Documentation/kernel-parameters.txt

and here is one link:
