Alleyoop is a graphical front-end to the increasingly popular Valgrind
memory checker for x86 GNU/ Linux using the Gtk+ widget set and other
GNOME libraries for the X-Windows environment.

Features include a right-click context menu to intelligently suppress
errors or launch an editor on the source file/jumping to the exact
line of the error condition. A searchbar at the top of the viewer can
be used to limit the viewable errors to those that match the regex
criteria entered. Also included is a fully functional Suppressions
Comment 1 Michael Schwendt 2005-08-25 06:37:52 EDT
* missing BR gettext
* "X-Desktop-File-Install-Version=0.4" should not be in alleyop.desktop
* s/X-Windows/X Window System/   in %description
* GConf2 --makefile-uninstall-rule code missing in %postun
* scriptlet Requires for GConf2 and scrollkeeper missing

Run-time test from console (with Rawhide), steps to reproduce:
$ alleyoop 
valgrind: Bad option '--logfile-fd=15'; aborting.
valgrind: Use --help for more information.

2) Click "Run" button, enter "/bin/bash", click "Execute".
Comment 2 Tom "spot" Callaway 2005-09-01 17:46:15 EDT
-3 has all these items fixed. Tested with /bin/bash on valgrind 3.0 in rawhide.

Comment 3 Michael Schwendt 2005-09-02 21:58:50 EDT
* Fails with a different syntax error for me (rawhide):

$ alleyoop 
valgrind: Bad option '--leak-check=false'; aborting.
valgrind: Use --help for more information.

$ rpm -q alleyoop valgrind fedora-release

* In a moment of distraction, I made the mistake to click "Open", then
selected /bin/bash (also the small /bin/unlink to reproduce), and the
gui became unresponsive, with strace showing what looked like an endless
loop (polling fds). I know "Open" is supposed to load log files, _but_...

* I also noted that once I entered something into the "Run" dialog, it
is impossible to choose a different program without leaving/re-starting
alleyoop first, since clicking "Run" just re-processes the old program.

Someone on IRC acked about whether alleyoop had been submitted and a search
turned up this review, stalled for eleven months now.  Any chance of anything
happening here?
Comment 5 Gianluca Sforna 2006-08-03 18:10:18 EDT
That was me :) I just finished updating the package to 0.9.2 and it seems
working fine on my FC5. 

I could be interested in getting this into FE, it does a nice pair with the
other package I submitted (bug 191473), so if nothing moves on I could try to
hijack it :)
Comment 6 Gianluca Sforna 2006-08-03 18:12:31 EDT
bug 191743 ...
Comment 7 Tom "spot" Callaway 2006-08-04 10:11:51 EDT
Hijack away. Just make sure you test the cases that Michael Schwendt pointed out.
Comment 8 Gianluca Sforna 2006-08-14 10:21:58 EDT
OK. the new review request is bug 201417
