Introduction to Valgrind

Valgrind is a GPL'd system for debugging and profiling Linux programs. With Valgrind's tool suite you can automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, avoiding hours of frustrating bug-hunting, making your programs more stable. You can also perform detailed profiling to help speed up your programs.

Dependencies

It appears that only x86, x86_64, ppc, and ppc64 are supported.

Required

Non-Multilib

On a pure64 system you need to pass --enable-only64bit to configure to prevent it from trying to build multiarch.

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:^CFLAGS="-Wno-long-long":CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-long-long":' configure.in &&
autoconf &&
./configure --prefix=/usr &&
make

Install the package:

make install

Multilib

64bit

Compile the package:

sed -i -e 's:^CFLAGS="-Wno-long-long":CFLAGS="$CFLAGS -Wno-long-long":' configure.in &&
autoconf &&
./configure --prefix=/usr --libdir=/usr/lib64 &&
make

Install the package:

make install &&
sed "/arch=/s:=.*:="$(sed -e '/VG_PLATFORM_PRI/!d' -e 's/.*= //' -e 's/_.*//' Makefile | \
   tr [[:upper:]] [[:lower:]])":" valgrind.pc > /usr/lib64/pkgconfig/valgrind.pc
sed "/arch=/s:=.*:="$(sed -e '/VG_PLATFORM_SEC/!d' -e 's/.*= //' -e 's/_.*//' Makefile | \
   tr [[:upper:]] [[:lower:]])":" valgrind.pc > /usr/lib/pkgconfig/valgrind.pc
