I am trying to attach a root process to gdb debugger.
What i did:
- I opened a root in a terminal
- in another terminal, i found the id of the root.exe with $pidof root.exe (gives 12345)
and attached it to the gdb with: $sudo gdb -p 12345.
My problem is that it does not agttach the root.exe process, ending up with this error instead:
0x00007faef4288faa in __GI___select (nfds=1, readfds=0x4cf580, writefds=0x4cf610, exceptfds=exceptfds@entry=0x0, timeout=timeout@entry=0x0) at …/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/select.c:41
41 …/sysdeps/unix/sysv/linux/select.c: No such file or directory.
Do you know what can I do in order to attached root.exe successfully, or what am I doing wrong?
