[Python-Dev] valgrind and python?
Tue, 27 Aug 2002 17:25:53 -0700
hmmm... I tried what you said:
- I used the last cvs 2.2 version (cvs upd -r release22-maint)
- I never load my module
- I used gcc 3.1.1
- I even passed the option --workaround-gcc296-bugs=yes
but still I'v got the same kind of error report.....
maybe the compiler is too new, but I can go back to
gcc 2.96 (because of the c++ support).
So, in the meantime, I will just ignore the reports......
