sounds interesting ... but a bit to difficult for me ;-)
if i could manage to transfer a core dump/memory image to my host
i would be happy :)

a memory image would be enough for me at the moment ...

thats what i need - how to get it ?

thought there was a m68k-rtems-gdb available (e.g. from freebsd ports) -
isnt this all i need to debug core files ?
remaining question: is there a simple way to transfer a part of the
memory (which is needed to get enough info out of the core dump) over
a serial line?
