Description Orion Poplawski 2010-05-17 12:16:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Trying to build netcdf for EPEL 6 and it fails on pp64.  Task is here:


First it runs a series of tests, and then it runs them under valgrind.  Tests run fine without valgrind, but segfault under valgrind.  I don't have access to a ppc64 machine at the moment to test with.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Comment 2 Jakub Jelinek 2010-05-18 10:04:32 EDT
Just rerun the failed test under valgrind without -q from the spec file, that will
print out the problem.  An application bug is far more probable than valgrind bug here.  When valgrind segfaults, most of the time it just means the application segfaulted, say accessing a freed block etc.  valgrind message should contain enough info to fix it.

I can't reproduce this anymore.
