I've a problem configuring the JTAG CONSOLE feature of U-boot and Linux kernel: I'm obtaining no output in both modes.

I have followed with attention all the guides in , expecially these:


I'm using gnICE+ JTAG Adapter, which I think is well configured because I'm using for debug purposes the couple gdb<->gdbproxy without any problem. Gdbproxy creates correctly the two ports on the host linux PC:
