I’ve compiled bro from source to do some debugging. Once compiled I can’t run bro since there is an error popping up:
fatal error: can’t find base/init-bare.bro
If I do the make install and then call bro from /usr/local/bro/bin/bro it works fine.
What I should do to execute bro from the build directory?
should set all required environment variables.
It actually works if i’m in a shell but not if I’m debugging it with dbg.
It still shows the same error when executing main.cc:759 → add_input_file(“base/init-bare.bro”);
Is there anything I need to execute from within dbg to set the environment variables while using gdb?
Thank you again
I’ve tried running:
set exec-wrapper bash -c 'source /home/default/bro/build/bro-path-dev.sh'
no. How exactly are you running gdb?
gdb `which bro`
should work just fine.
gdb --interpreter mi --args “/home/default/bro/build/src/bro” -r /tmp/arp_l2tpv3.cap
I’m using VisualGDB (http://visualgdb.com/?features=linux) to debug it from Visual Studio as I’ve done with tons of other projects. It just execute the gdb commands over SSH So its basically the same than executing them from a ssh session.
