I have a 32-bit MIPS binary and I'm trying to execute it on Ubuntu 64-bit.

file command for the binary shows:

bin: ELF 32-bit MSB  executable, MIPS, MIPS32 rel2 version 1 (SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), stripped

If I use qemu-mips to execute it, I get the following error:

/lib/ld-musl-mips-sf.so.1: No such file or directory

How can I execute it? I'd like to remote debug it using IDA Pro.

  • This is a dynamically linked binary. You need the corresponding libc package (like from here ) – 0xec Nov 30 '18 at 19:25
  • and then run qemu-mipsel -L /usr/mipsel-linux-gnu/ ./filename – 0xec Nov 30 '18 at 19:28
  • Alternatively you can use qemu full system emulation and run the binary within this – 0xec Nov 30 '18 at 19:31
  • For debugging, run qemu-mipsel with the gdb stub (The -g parameter) and attach IDA to it – 0xec Nov 30 '18 at 19:34
  • 1
    In that case check out the precompiled toolchains from toolchains.bootlin.com – 0xec Dec 5 '18 at 16:40
