I am rather new with the ARM-processor and and all these tools. I am
using the following hardware and tools:

Target: AT91SAM7X-EK Evaluation Board of ATMEL
Tools:  Yagarto gcc-based GNU-Toolchain (native windows) running under
Eclipse Europe IDE (V
BDI2000:(by Abatron), configured for ARM using B20ARMGD.EXE V1.05

My system compiles and links projects that I created from
example-projects provided by ATMEL. I can modify the source, compile and
link it and download the code to either flash or RAM using SAM-BA. The
flash-version works as I can see from the blinking LEDs on the board
(following a power up), but I do not know how to launch the program
loaded into RAM. That is probably where the Debugger would come in. I
have configured the debugger as shown in the attachment.

The IP-Adress specified is ok - the BDI2000 answers when pinged. The
port 2001 is according to the BDI-Manual. So it should work. but it does
not. The consol-output of the gdb reports the following (exerpt
29-gdb-show prompt
29^done,value="(gdb) "
30-gdb-set new-console on
&"No symbol \"new\" in current context.\n"

Hence no connection with the BDI. What's wrong?
Thanks and best regards
