valgrind: rrecommend libc6-dbg on all architectures
It seems that valgrind requires debug symbols to be available on all architectures so there's no reason to treat arm and powerpc specially. Ensuring that libc6-dbg is installed avoids errors like this on x86: 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: valgrind: was not found whilst processing valgrind: symbols from the object with soname: 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 (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: Cannot continue -- exiting now. Sorry. Signed-off-by: Mike Crowe <> Signed-off-by: Saul Wold <>
