debug symbol file for linux kernel

view full story

http://stackoverflow.com – I want to debug both my QEMU source code and Linux kernel source code(ported to a particular board) when trying to boot the kernel image on QEMU. So i start something like this : Step 1 : $gdb qemu-system-arm step 2 : $break { list of breakpoints in qemu src } step 3 : $run {kernel image} {boot loader image} step 4 : open another console step 5 : $arm-none-eabi-gdb step 6 : $file {load debug symbol file for compiled kernel src} Ques : what file in the compiled kernel src contains the debug symbols ? If i load the same kernel image, it says file format not recognized. I tried this wi (HowTos)
