RE: insight+dejagnu-20010225 internal error 206


actually I was thinking in a similar direction. As it turns out, the file to
load has sections "text", "data" and "bss" but NOT
".text" ...
(with a leading period).
I changed my linker script to rename the sections to have leading periods,
and now it seems to work...
The point was, this used to work in the insight-5.0 release.
Maybe it's a feature and not a bug, I don't know.

Thx anyway
