Description Tom Tromey 2006-12-27 15:02:02 EST
Today I tried using 'valgrind --db-attach=yes'.
This printed an error message about the command '-nw'
not being found.

I think this happens because valgrind.spec does not
have a BuildReq on gdb.  This means that the
AC_PATH_PROG in valgrind's configure.in ends up
substituting an empty string instead of a path to gdb.

A workaround is to specify --db-command manually.

Should be fixed in valgrind-3.2.3-4 in rawhide.
