I'm working on the challenges on ROP Emporium. For the ARMv5 version of the callme challenge, we are given two binaries and two shared libraries:
libcallme_armv5-hf.so. The first pair appears to be using the armel EABI, while the second pair is using the armhf EABI.
In Appendix B of ROP Emporium's Beginner's Guide, they show how to set up an environment for cross-platform debugging for ARM like so:
$ sudo apt install qemu-user libc6-armel-cross gdb-multiarch $ sudo mkdir /etc/qemu-binfmt $ sudo ln -s /usr/arm-linux-gnueabi /etc/qemu-binfmt/arm
That works great for armel, but it doesn't work for armhf. So I found this post, showing how to set up an environment for cross-platform debugging of armhf binaries.
$ sudo apt install qemu-user libc6-armhf-cross gdb-multiarch $ sudo mkdir /etc/qemu-binfmt $ sudo ln -s /usr/arm-linux-gnueabihf /etc/qemu-binfmt/arm
This works fine for armhf, but not for armel ...
$ qemu-arm ./callme_armv5-hf # Okay ... $ qemu-arm ./callme_armv5 # FAIL ./callme_armv5: error while loading shared libraries: libcallme_armv5.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory
The problem is that both setups create the same symlink, but to different directories, so I can debug armel and armhf binaries individually, but each time I want to switch, I have to change the symlink. Is there some way to set up an environment so I can debug both binaries simultaneously?
In case it's relevant, I'm running Ubuntu 20.04 under WSL2.
