I have restructured the kgdb webpage for better readability and added extensive
documentation. The documentation is still being being written.

kgdb for linux kernel 2.4.6 is available from the downloads page. It has
following improvements over kgdb for 2.4.3 and 2.4.5 kernels.

- Enhanced kgdb with kgdb and kernel asserts.
- Added configuration option for thread analysis. The configuration option
  enables code required for thread analysis which is disabled by default to of
  the overhead it causes.
- Modified semaphore handling functions so that knowing where a thread is
  waiting on a semaphore is easier.

Please visit to get new kgdb.
