I tried reading the contents of a BIOS EEPROM Chip saved in a file called dump.bin. I also tried opening a file called coreboot.rom containing a Coreboot image. In both cases this error occurred:
I used Bless Hexeditor to open the file, but I only got these ASCII squares with four numbers in it, describing which ASCII value the characters have.
Most of them are 0046-squares, which equivalents to letter "
This goes well with what I already know about the contents of dump.bin.
How can I make Bless Hexeditor show me the real byte values as integers/characters? I didn't find any resource regarding this topic. I tried reinstalling Bless with Synaptic package manager, but it didn't help.
I use Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS, Xubuntu flavor. I use xfce4 desktop but I also have some GNOME stuff installed.
ls /usr/bin/*session returns
/usr/bin/dbus-run-session /usr/bin/gnome-session-custom-session /usr/bin/gnome-session /usr/bin/xfce4-session
When I run
bless in terminal, I get the following errors before
Could not find a part of the path '/home/user/.config/bless/plugins'. Could not find a part of the path '/home/user/.config/bless/plugins'. Could not find file "/home/user/.config/bless/export_patterns"
When searching for these errors, I found this thread saying that the errors don't actually mean sth.
Edit2: I found that
GHex works just fine, so I'll probably stick with that. It's weird though that a friend of mine using Bless with Ubuntu 20.04 doesn't have this problem.
