Subject: Re: [OMPI users] Configuring OpenMPI 1.3.3, 1.4 --with-valgrind 3.5.0

Thats correct, I set with-valgrind to point to the source directory..
Initially, I intended to use the valgrind distributed with Fedora 10,
but that has no header files included - so after Id downloaded the
valgrind source, it seemed like the next thing to try.

It works fine with the installation directory . Now for the tricky bit,
finding the leak(s)..

Thanks for the rapid reply -

Thanks for the bug report!

I puzzled over your text for a while before I figured out what I think
the problem is -- I think the argument you've given to --with-valgrind
is the *source* tree for Valgrind. You actually want to give the
*installation* directory as the argument to --with-valgrind.

Indeed, I downloaded Valgrind 3.5.0 and installed it to
/opt/valgrind/3.5.0 and was able to build Open MPI
--with-valgrind=/opt/valgrind/3.5.0 --enable-memchecker with no

Can you could check that your --with-valgrind argument is actually the
installation directory, not the source directory?
