Have you ever tried to use Valgrind on OpenSuSE and run into this strange message:
valgrind: Fatal error at startup: a function redirection valgrind: which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination valgrind: cannot be set up. Details of the redirection are: valgrind: valgrind: A must-be-redirected function valgrind: whose name matches the pattern: strlen valgrind: in an object with soname matching: ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 valgrind: was not found whilst processing valgrind: symbols from the object with soname: ld-linux-x86-64.so.2 valgrind: valgrind: Possible fixes: (1, short term): install glibc's debuginfo valgrind: package on this machine. (2, longer term): ask the packagers valgrind: for your Linux distribution to please in future ship a non- valgrind: stripped ld.so (or whatever the dynamic linker .so is called) valgrind: that exports the above-named function using the standard valgrind: calling conventions for this platform. valgrind: valgrind: Cannot continue -- exiting now. Sorry.
Fortunately, the solution is simple. All you need is the correct debuginfo package for your version of glibc:
sudo zypper install http://download.opensuse.org/debug/distribution/11.2/repo/oss/suse/x86_64/glibc-debuginfo-2.10.1-10.4.x86_64.rpm
Take care to adjust the above line if you’re not running x86-64.
