I have an Ubuntu 13.04 x86_64 kernel 3.8.0-31-generic If I try to use valgrind on any binary it returns:
==10571== Memcheck, a memory error detector ==10571== Copyright (C) 2002-2012, and GNU GPL'd, by Julian Seward et al. ==10571== Using Valgrind-3.8.1 and LibVEX; rerun with -h for copyright info ==10571== Command: test.out ==10571== valgrind: Fatal error at startup: a function redirection valgrind: which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination valgrind: cannot be set up.

Sorry.
Although this question has been addressed in
The proposed solution
sudo apt-get install libc6-dbg
does not work for me, no way.
ii libc6-dbg:amd64 2.17-0ubuntu5 amd64 Embedded GNU C Library: detached debugging symbols ii valgrind 1:3.8.1-1ubuntu5 amd64 instrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools ii valgrind-dbg 1:3.8.1-1ubuntu5 amd64 instrumentation framework for building dynamic analysis tools (debug)
Any idea? Thanks
