Android: No debugging symbols found in gdbserver
I try to attach a process on my rooted Android and create corefile with GDB but it can't create a gcore file because the symbols could not be found. on my phone, i open Terminal app and i input su to grant root access in Terminal. i input dumpsys meminfo to show all running processes. i input gdbserver :1234 --attach 5132 on my computer, i open gdb.exe (from Android NDK) and i input (gdb) target remote 192.168.1.13:1234 and i got those infomation (gdb) target remote 192.168.1.13:1234 Remote debugging using 192.168.1.13:1234 warning: Architecture rejected target-supplied description Reading /system/bin/app_process32_original from remote target... warning: File transfers from remote targets can be slow.

() i type gcore and it says Can't create a corefile I have installed the correct gdbserver binary that match with my kernel architecture in /system/bin I tried different Android OSes below Android 4.4.4 which does not have PIE protection thing, but i still getting the same problem. I tried to use ported version gdb client and it works perfectly. I just wanna save the corefile with my powerful device running Android 5.1.1 with 2 GB RAM, instead using gdb client on my low-end tablet that has 512 MB RAM and running Android 4.4.4, and the gdb could not fully create the corefile due to low RAM.
Just download gdb source and compile with below steps: 1).Compile gdb with below command: cd gdb-7.11/gdb ./configure --target=arm-linux-androideabi --with-python --prefix=$HOME/mybinaries/bin make make install 2).Compile gdbserver with below command: cd gdb-7.11/gdb/gdbserver CC=arm-linux-androideabi-gcc LDFLAGS="-fPIC -pie" ./configure --target=arm-linux-androideabi --host=arm-linux-androideabi --prefix=$HOME/mybinaries/bin make make install
When compiling the GDB, i must give the target --target arm-linux-androideabi instead --target arm-eabi and it works perfectly
