valgrind-3.5 request

Postby archwndas » Tue Nov 03, 2009 20:04

Dear all,
Valgrind in Sabayon 5.0 does not work at all. In one of my related posts in this thread, xnagla suggested I request valgrind-3.5 in entropy since there is already an ebuild in Gentoo portage.

Could somebody take care of that please, since it is an amazing tool for debugging and catching memory bugs.

Thank you all,
Archwn.

Should file a bug in our bugzilla and I believe Joost has already taken care of this.

Thanks Wolfden,
thanks Joost! I am installing it at the moment. Ouuupssss. This is what I get:

$ valgrind bin/run

Sorry Wolfden,
but I have spent 10 minutes and I still can't understand how to issue a bug. I do not know why you have made it so hard. There should be something like add New Bug Report, option in the

http://bugs.sabayonlinux.org/

webpage in the same manner there exists for threads in forum.

The only choice that sounds like a bug report is:

"Enter a new issue report"

And I get something like:

Add "the named tag" {-----------------------------} to issues [---------------------] Commit

I apologize, I do not know if I am stupid or not, but there is no instruction what to do there and I do not understand what should I enter in there. I would expect something like a start a new thread in the forum. So that I can enter a title of the bug and the description and attach some files if possible. Sorry I cannot waste more time. If you want, you have all my information in my previous thread, please submit a bug report for me, or explain me how.

http://bugs.sabayonlinux.org/enter_bug.cgi

choose one of the three products (the light blue links): entropy, overlay, or Sabayon Linux

from there it looks like a fairly normal bugzilla entry screen.

Hope that helps.

As an example, the URL to file a bug generically related to Sabayon would be:
http://bugs.sabayonlinux.org/enter_bug. ... on%20Linux

Thank you very much xlnagla. I ahave already submitted the report. By the way, I do not know why Wolfden couldn't tell me that. Please do something about this webpage because after one logs in, the options you have do not look like real options but just like plain text. If these options were rendered on some buttons or something they would caught the eye immediately.

Cheers,
Archwn.

Perhaps he was busy. I can't comment on it; I can only say that I found the bugzilla relatively easy to use myself. The trick is to look at the instructions on the top of the page; they generally tell you what to do.

It is badly designed Xlnagla. Even if you read the instructions suggesting to choose a product, you still need to move the cursor over whatever seems likely to be a product to find out that the Blue Letters represent links that are click-able. The page should be such that the eye can directly identify what to click without even reading instructions. Somewhat closer to what all of us are used to. Something like 3 buttons instead of letters or underlined links or something which crieeeeees

CLICK ME.

Cheers,
Thank you by the way, I really appreciate.

Im in the same boat as xangla here. Imo its pretty simple, blue underlined text is a link, black text isnt.
