Whenever I try to use Valgrind, I am faced with this error:
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. The package you need valgrind: to install for fix (1) is called valgrind: valgrind: On Debian, Ubuntu: libc6-dbg valgrind: On SuSE, openSuSE, Fedora, RHEL: glibc-debuginfo valgrind: valgrind: Note that if you are debugging a 32 bit process on a valgrind: 64 bit system, you will need a corresponding 32 bit debuginfo valgrind: package (e.g. libc6-dbg:i386). valgrind: valgrind: Cannot continue -- exiting now. Sorry.
There are a few topics in arch forums for this issue. I think this thread pretty much sums up all the recommended fixes I have found. However, on my system, the DEBUGINFOD_URLS env variable is already set, and the default shell is bash, so the only solution left is compiling glibc with debug symbols (which doesn’t seem ideal). Before doing that, is there any other solution I can try?
