Compling valgrind for PPC85xx architecture.

I have successfully cross compiled valgrid for PPC85xx architecture. I have following file

  • ./coregrind/valgrind
  • ./coregrind/
  • ./memcheck/memcheck-ppc32-linux
  • ./memcheck/
  • ./default.supp

I did put these files in /home/valg folder on target folder and exported the libraries as

export VALGRIND_LIB=/home/valg


I am running valgrind for "val" and getting this error.

[root@85xx valg11]# ./valgrind -v /home/val

==1023== TO CONTROL THIS PROCESS USING vgdb (which you probably

==1023== or are doing some strange experiment):

==1023==   /home/valg11/../../bin/vgdb --pid=1023 ...command...


==1023== TO DEBUG THIS PROCESS USING GDB: start GDB like this

==1023==   /path/to/gdb /home/val

==1023== and then give GDB the following command

==1023==   target remote | /home/valg11/../../bin/vgdb --pid=1023

==1023== --pid is optional if only one valgrind process is running


==1023== error 22 Invalid argument

I don't know what the problem is, Has someone run valgrind on powerpc architecture ? What procedure should i follow ?
