Valgrind + Mac OS X update (July 17, 2009)

We’re now in the preparation phase for the 3.5.0 release of Valgrind, which will be the first release with Mac OS X support.  We’ve absorbed some Mozilla culture in the Valgrind development process — we’re now using Bugzilla much more effectively.  We have 17 open blockers (and 18 closed blockers), and 41 open “wanted” bugs (and 7 closed ones).  Any contributions towards fixing these bugs is most welcome!  We’re hoping to release in early August.

  1. Hey, congratulations on the pending release.

    Reading your series on porting Valgrind to OS X has been entertaining and enlightening. Valgrind is a great tool, so it’s good to see its influence widening.

    Keep it up!

  2. Hi,

    It is excellent news. We are looking forward to 3.5.0…

    Thanks,

  3. Hi Nicholas,

    Trunk on Mac 10.5.7 with Xcode 3.1.3 has had trouble compiling for a few revisions of late.

    $svn up
    At revision 10658.
    $./configure
    ….
    $make && sudo make install
    ….
    Making all in .
    make[4]: *** No rule to make target `drd_gomp_intercepts.c’, needed by `vgpreload_drd_x86_darwin_so-drd_gomp_intercepts.o’. Stop.
    make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
    make[1]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
    make: *** [all] Error 2
    $

    Any thoughts on what might be causing this?

  4. Woops, I forgot the ./autogen.sh step. Compiling fine Nic.

    I should go RTFM again :)
