My kernel was configured without CONFIG_KDB_OFF, so kdb should be active. The problem is that I cannot come to the point at which I can print backtraces etc, because the Pause key is missing on my keyboard. As far as I understood, I have to press it to enter kdb and can then type things like "bt" and so. > However, AFAIK kdb support is only maintained for ia64, x86_64, and > i386 architectures. The macbook I am using is x86_64. -- Regards/Mit freundlichen Gr????en Christian Weiske -- Attached file included as plaintext by Ecartis -- -- File: signature.asc -----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE----- Version: GnuPG v2.0.9 (GNU/Linux) iEYEARECAAYFAkhMDyoACgkQFMhaCCTq+CObCwCeLuuyAWL1+kFRGqjiutEUGfel LXQAniZhg8P4VUM0rN/jUIgGzXLNlMLC =JUgm -----END PGP SIGNATURE----- --------------------------- Use http://oss.sgi.com/ecartis to modify your settings or to unsubscribe.
