Hi,

I have compiled kernel 2.6.31.4 and apply real-time patch
"patch-2.6.31.4-rt14.bz2"
Then I wanted to install "kdb", and I followed instructions from this site:

IBM : developerWorks : Site maintenance

and I selected these patches:

kdb-v4.4-2.6.31-x86-4.bz2
kdb-v4.4-2.6.31-common-4.bz2

One patch was patched without problems [not sure which one ] and
other one had one
line with rejection [something about serial port]. Anyway, I compiled
kernel, and booted
into it after.

Questions:

1. When I press pause key everything freezes ? Is it because that one line of
rejection during patching ?

2. How do you invoke kdb ? When you invoke it properly, will "kdb"
shell will be visible in
terminal ?

regards
