One OClock in the Morning

I took a break from breaking into computers, with some of my children, to play an accordion with others of my children. I was too tired to pull out the Cordovox.. it’s heavy, and I’m old!

Yep, I am the head of a really weird household.

NOTE: Braeden is holding the accordion I started playing when I was 6 years old, Donovan is holding the accordion I started playing when I was 11. 😱

Where were you when I needed you!?

Over the last year, it’s been pretty hard to not put on a couple COVID pounds… or, let’s be honest, about 20 COVID pounds; and as of late, when I’m looking in the mirror, and I say “Man, I’ve gotten pretty fat”, my wife @amandarachael is quick to say “You’re not fat”…..

Well, today, I went to the chiropractor (long overdue), and the chiropractor says… hrm… “you’re kind of fat, that’s gonna hurt your back”.

AND Amanda is sitting in the chair, right next to me, and she didn’t jump to defend my honor! Where were you when I needed you?!?

Well played, fairweather friend! 😜

Socks and first world problems :(

I decided to treat myself to new socks, so I wouldn’t have to keep spending 15 minutes every morning searching the floordrobe for socks… only to find out that the new socks have a (l)eft and (r)ight orientation. 

HOW IS THAT GOING TO HELP???

To add insult to injury, I didn’t realize this until I finally decided that the socks were too uncomfortable and I needed to return them. I went to take them off and found the L on the R side, at least I got them switched around now….

So… I was just driving down the road, and I said:  

“I hate people that drive in the passing lane below the speed limit”.

My zfold2 phone comes to life and says:

“Virginia has a law against driving to slow, but it doesn’t define how slow is too slow.”

Building GnuDisassembler for Ghidra on Kali 2020.3

Let me save you all an hour+ of your life. 

Grab the latest version of Ghidra: https: https://ghidra-sre.org/

Use the Ghidra GUI to install the GnuDisassembler and the SleighDevTools.

Install the following dependencies to Kali:

flex

bison

texinfo

zlib1g-dev

grade

Download the latest binutils source into your ~/.ghidra/ghidra_<version>/ directory.  Link for the right version can be found in the build.gradle file in that directory.

Set your GHIDRA_INSTALL_DIR to the location of your ghidra install (mine was /opt/ghidra/ghidra_<version>.

Check your version of gradle:

gradle –version

Compare the version of gradle Kali installed, to the required version listed in the /Ghidra/application.properties file from the source for the version of ghidra you installed.

Kali installed version 4.4.1 for me, but the minimum for gradle for ghidra 10 is 6!!

If there is a version difference, download the binary for the right version of gradle and use that to run your build command..

Sad to say, I spent over an hour trying to debug completely ambiguous errors from gradle (e.g. Could not find method get() for arguments [] on platform ‘linux64’ of type org.gradle.platform.internal.DefaultNativePlatform).

gradle build

Enjoy!
