Debugging issue with -m32 program


Hello,
I have compiled a simple c program with -m32 option. Thing is that when I want to copy some data into an array, it crashes 


Breakpoint 1, main (argc=1, argv=0xffffd154) at vuln.c:35
35      strcpy( dest, buffer );
(gdb) p &buffer[0]
$1 = 0xffffcfb5 '\220' <repeats 50 times>, "\061\300Ph//shh/bin\211\343P\211\342S\211\341\260\v̀", '\220' <repeats 37 times>, "P\336\377\377\377\177"
(gdb) p &dest[0]
$2 = 0xffffd02c "\020\334\377", <incomplete sequence \367>
(gdb) x/100x 0xffffcfb5

(gdb) next

Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.
0x56555655 in main (argc=<error reading variable: Cannot access memory at address 0x90909090>, 
    argv=<error reading variable: Cannot access memory at address 0x90909094>) at vuln.c:37
37    }




Without specifying -m32, there is no problem. I wonder why it tries to access 0x90909090. There is some problem with 32/64 bit data.

Mahmood
