I have been trying to follow the online tutorial for Learn C The Hard Way.
However after setting up valgrind (I followed other links that help setting up valgrind on ubuntu 12.04), when I try to debug the c executable, I find the following errors.
ayusman@ayusman-ubuntu:~/lcthw$ valgrind ./ex4 ==1984== Memcheck, a memory error detector ==1984== Copyright (C) 2002-2011, and GNU GPL'd, by Julian Seward et al. ==1984== Using Valgrind-3.7.0 and LibVEX; rerun with -h for copyright info ==1984== Command: ./ex4 ==1984== valgrind: Fatal error at startup: a function redirection valgrind: which is mandatory for this platform-tool combination valgrind: cannot be set up.

Sorry. ayusman@ayusman-ubuntu:~/lcthw$
Is there something that I can do to make valgrind finally work?
I have ubuntu 12.04 on virtual box. My laptop is a Windows 7 64 bit OS.
