A couple of things:
- Always cast the arguments to ptrace. They are generally of type
"long", which may not be the same as "int".
- If you are debugging a 64-bit program you need a 64-bit GDB.
Sounds like you're on a 32-bit system though.
- Verify whether your headers are messed up. I already recommended
the use of strace for this. It can decode the arguments.
What is the incorrect value? What is the correct value?
