- Subject: breaking on open(2) on linux
I've used gdb for 20 years...I've found the ability to
break on a system call and then backtrace very useful when
reverse engineering code
Now, I can't do it (not sure when I last could -- I recall its been
a problem before, but I worked around it).
strace shows open(2) calls...
I have no problem breaking on exit(3) or _exit(2) -- or write(2).
But I can't seem to break on
I'm using ubuntu 7.10 with recent gdb/gcc...
