Comment 1 Jakub Jelinek 2006-05-09 04:29:18 EDT
Have you tested the rpms provided in rawhide?
Comment 2 Ben Liblit 2006-06-01 01:21:14 EDT
I just tried the rawhide valgrind-3.1.1-3 RPM.  It seems to work fine, though
I've really done little more than a quick sanity check.

The newer rpm also fixes a bug that I was otherwise planning to report.  I came
across this while working on my own custom valgrind instrumentation tool (still
in development):

In theory, valgrind can use debug info to find the source file and line number
for any given instruction.  However, no source information is available when
using the standard FC5 valgrind-3.1.0-2 RPM.  If I switch to the rawhide
valgrind-3.1.1-3 RPM, then the expected source information does appear.

So I Jonathan Underwood's recommendation that this be rolled out as a Fedora
Core 5 update.
Comment 3 Jonathan Underwood 2006-06-01 07:38:44 EDT
I've been using the rawhide rpm for the past week or so, and have seen no
regressions so far.
Comment 4 Jonathan Underwood 2006-08-07 14:30:49 EDT
Version 3.2 is now out - would be nice to get an upgrade for FC-5 to that. Will
try the devel rpms tonight.
Comment 5 Jakub Jelinek 2007-07-03 03:17:56 EDT
FC5 is no longer supported and newer valgrind is shipped in FC6 and F7.
