what is it?
An application debugger which resides in kernel memory and provides a debugging alternative to ptrace(2). This is primarily intended for systems administrators, virus/antivirus coders, crackers, reverse engineers, and security types -- i.e., anyone who has to debug thrid-party or hostile code in the course of their work.
The debugging package consists of the following tools:
While ddbg works, programmers are encouraged to develop new Xish or console debugger clients based on libduderino.so.
what does it look like?
It's a kernel module, it looks like nothing ;P
The ddbg client debugger, however, looks a bit like SoftICE for the obvious reasons.
what is the status?
Not yet fully ported to the "new" 2.6 series kernel, also, the port from x86 to x86-64/AMD64 is currently partial and far from sa[fn]e. So in short, yes, it might compile, but, dude, think twice before trying to modprobe it... (if you do and survive, please drop us a mail :)
where are the files?
The DUDE is hosted at a Sourceforge Project Page. Currently the files are only available through CVS
You need to be a registered sourceforge user to access the CVS repository directly. The CVS source tree can be checked out with the following commands:
CVS_RSH=ssh export CVS_RSH mkdir the_dude cd the_dude cvs -email@example.com:/cvsroot/the-dude co .Alternatively, anyone can download the nightly tarball of the CVS tree at http://cvs.sourceforge.net/cvstarballs/the-dude-cvsroot.tar.bz2 .
what about support?
The DUDE abides.
why is it called the DUDE?
who's behind it?
