I built the RTEMS based on <<Getting Started with RTEMS for C/C++ Users>> document. After successful building, I built "hello world" application, based on previous built BSP.

Hello.exe generated successfully, but I cannot debug it with VisionClick? debugging tools which comes from WindRiver?.

At first time, I reported this problem to WindRiver? engineer, and based on their researching, their found that debugging information in hello.exe cannot be exacted by powerpc-rtems-objdump.

I tested it too, as following command:

powerpc-rtems-objdump -g hello.exe

the output is listed as following:
hello.exe: file format elf32-powerpc

powerpc-rtems-objdump: hello.exe: no recognized debugging information

Then I used the following command to get sections information:
powerpc-rtems-objdump -h hello.exe
the results indicated that debugging information exist in hello.exe file.

Looks like something that isn't the responsibility of the RTEMS Project and hasn't been updated in a long time.
