Description Jerry James 2013-09-24 18:44:56 EDT
Description of problem:
I maintain the stp package.  It is currently failing to build in Rawhide on x86_64 because its self-tests use valgrind to check for memory leaks, and it is getting this:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. fedpkg clone stp
2. cd stp
3. fedpkg srpm
4. mock -r fedora-rawhide-x86_64 --rebuild stp-0.1-16.20130223svn.fc21.src.rpm

Actual results:
The build fails with a valgrind error.

Expected results:
Successful build.

Comment 1 Mark Wielaard 2013-09-26 16:13:53 EDT
This is fixed upstream, and it only happens with the glibc in rawhide, f20 is fine. My current guess is that it is this: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=308627 but it is difficult to backport that and the followup patches to our valgrind-3.8.1 variant in fedora.

So lets add a suppression for now as workaround that can be removed when 3.9.0 is released and imported.

Please test valgrind-3.8.1-30.fc21.
Comment 2 Jerry James 2013-09-26 17:15:13 EDT
I just did a mock build with valgrind-3.8.1-30.fc21, and that resulted in a successful build of stp.  Thank you once again for a quick resolution to the problem, Mark.

Thanks for reporting and testing.
