[lldb-dev] LLDB does not respect platform sysroot when loading core on Linux

Instead of setting the sysroot, try the command

image search-paths add / /path/to/remote/shared/libraries/


That adds to the list that the dynamic loader uses to map shared object


It uses a simple text substitution, so in the above case,





Matching up trailing slashes is critical, as I learned the hard way!

I would appreciate advise how to fix this correctly.


I have a core dump from somebody's RHEL Linux and I am trying to open it on
my Ubuntu. I have all the shared libraries from the target sitting under my
local directory. So, GDB happily opens the core after I issue "set sysroot
/path/to/local/root", but LLDB release_60 fails to do it.


I follow instructions from Greg's Clayton mail
http://lists.llvm.org/pipermail/lldb-dev/2016-January/009236.html :


(lldb) platform select --sysroot /path/to/remote/shared/libraries

(lldb) <load core>


Under debugger, I see that LLDB successfully created Platform object with
m_sdk_root set to my path and the Target uses it as its platform:


(gdb) p target_sp->m_platform_sp->m_sdk_sysroot

$42 = {

  m_string = 0x80e070 "/tmp/debugcore.3WyoW4/lib2"



But this value is not used when it comes to

(gdb) bt

I simply do not see any reference to sysroot in the GetSharedModule() code.
What is there - it is only scanning module_search_paths_ptr looking for
file. This would not work because the scan ignores the directory part of the
module: it takes the next path from the list and appends the file name. What
I need instead - take m_sdk_sysroot from Platform and append the full module
- including directory - to it.


Unfortunately, GetSharedModule() is a static method and does not have any
clue what is current platform or current target. So, should I pass another
argument down there with sysroot or what? I have correct platform object at
frame 4.
