Description Richard W.M. Jones 2016-01-22 14:59:00 UTC
Description of problem:

All use of valgrind in Rawhide fails with:

  valgrind: mmap(0x600000, 8192) failed in UME with error 12 (Cannot allocate memory).

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

valgrind-3.11.0-5.fc24.x86_64
kernel-4.5.0-0.rc0.git7.1.fc24.x86_64 [see below]

How reproducible:

100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cat test.c
#include <stdlib.h>
int main ()
{
  exit (0);
}

2. gcc -o test test.c -g
3. valgrind test

Actual results:

valgrind: mmap(0x600000, 8192) failed in UME with error 12 (Cannot allocate memory).

Expected results:

Such a simple program shouldn't have any memory errors.

Additional info:

This was inconclusively reported upstream here:

http://sourceforge.net/p/valgrind/mailman/message/34755456/

It suggests it's a kernel bug or a change that was made in the Linux kernel.

Comment 1 Mark Wielaard 2016-01-22 15:05:16 UTC
Could you try with valgrind-3.11.0-8 which should include a fix for the change in kernel behaviour (). It was also submitted as an update for f23 (although that still uses a kernel with the original semantics for RLIMIT_DATA):

Oh yes, that works (actually the -9 package).  Thanks!
