Valgrind aborts after running for a while
Last modified: 2014-08-31 19:28:34 EDT
Description of problem:
I'm porting some very old code to modern Linux, and running it under valgrind
to find errors. Sometimes valgrind exits (the shell says Abort, but does not
generate a core file) without warning, killing my program.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
It's happened twice so far. Because the behavior of the program is random and
interactive, finding a programmable reproducer may be hard.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run valgrind --log-file=valgrind --leak-check=full ./hack
2.play the game a while
[hack@localhost hack]$ valgrind --log-file=valgrind --leak-check=full ./hack
Game should continue until I lose.
I'm afraid that without a reproducer there is nothing I can do about this.
Try to recompile rawhide valgrind for RHEL4 and use that instead to see if that
makes a difference.
