Hi forum,
I am interested to get the QCA4020 RAM dump analylsis to work. So far I was able to create a RAM dump and to download it via USB to my machine. I tried to follow the instructions in the Programmer's Guide document chapter 4.3.8 RAM dump analysis.
I understood that I need to have a dedicated GDB version, but this document lacks important information on:

- where to get the GDB sources to build the dedicated version?
- where to get the specific fix for GDB to support the backtraces?
- the configuration parameters for GDB to be build?

Did someone performed this task successfully and can give some more detailed instructions on how to do that?
Why can this GDB version binary not be part of the SDK to avoid the hassle for each developer to build that version?

Any help it much appreaciated.
