Description Michael Bunk 2005-05-17 07:19:10 UTC
starting valgrind even without any arguments outputs this message:

> valgrind: padding mmap(0x80f6000, -1477402624) failed during startup.
> valgrind: is there a hard virtual memory limit set?

ulimit gives "unlimited", but the physical RAM is only 128 MB.
500 MB swap space are there.

SuSE 9.0

ulimit -a:
Linux shabijingsngewthuh 2.4.21-243-cyrix3 #5 Thu Dec 30 12:54:59 IST 2004 i686
i686 i386 GNU/Linux

libc 2.3.2 (20030827)

full output of valgrind -v cannot be given.

Sorry, my fault! ulimit -a revealed my virtual memory limit to me.
