Kernel DWARF file of tinycore64?
« on: January 26, 2024, 01:17:42 AM »
Hello there,
I wonder if it's possible to get the Linux kernel elf DWARF file of tinycore64 ?
I tried to find something like debug version of tinycore64,but can't find anything similar.

There are no debug versions of tinycore available, you’d need to recompile whatever you require with the appropriate debug flags enabled.

Thanks for reply,
I'm a noob to linux so it may be too hard for me to recompile.
Sorry for not telling all the details,and this is what I actully met:
I somehow had to analyse a memory dump of a tinycore64(ver 6.1.2),in the format of .vmem file.
I try to use a tool called volatility3 to do this,and it need some info of symbol table.
After reading the tutorial,I know that I had to use a tool called dwarf2json ,to process a DWARF file of the core.
So I came here and post this.I think I may misunderstood something,is there any method to get the symbol table in an easier way?

No, such debug artifacts are not kept. You will have to build your own kernel if you need such.
The only barriers that can stop you are the ones you create yourself.
