Sorry, can you just clarify something: if you're cross-compiling
debugging an ARM target, why would you need to configure gdbserver

As far as I understand it you run gdbserver on the target and would
to run plain old gdb itself on your Mac.
Wow...I think you are right. I went back and re-read the
it does make more sense when read with your point of view. I had
understood that gdb does not have built-in networking code, so that
it would need gdbserver to handle networking for it. Sounds silly
now doesn't it?
If only the documentation had hit me over the head with something like
"gdbserver resides on the the remote target" although it does come
embarrassingly close to saying just that.
Thanks for your response. I've never been so happy to be wrong!
