But if you are interested in the details with step-by-step instructions, the following information will be helpful.
Short description: programs
First things first, you will need access to a server or computer running Fedora 34. This guide was written specifically with a server running Fedora 34 in mind, although it should also work on older, supported versions of the operating system.
Also, make sure you are running a regular, non-root user with sudo privileges configured on your server. When you have an account available, log in as your non-root user to begin.
There are several ways to install vgdb on Fedora 34. You can use (links are clickable):
In the following sections, we will describe each method in detail. You can choose one of them or refer to the recommended one.
First, update dnf packages database with
dnf by running the next command:
sudo dnf makecache --refresh
After updating database,
You can install vgdb using
dnf by running the
sudo dnf -y install valgrind-1
Because vgdb is available in Fedora 34’s default
it is possible to install it from these repositories using the
To begin, update local packages database with
yum using the following command.
sudo yum makecache --refresh
Now can install vgdb package on your server/computer by running the following command:

However, if you want to upgrade a single package, then you would have to pass the package name as
the argument to the dnf update command.
dnf update valgrind-1
To uninstall only the
vgdb package you can execute
sudo dnf remove valgrind-1
Valgrind is a system for debugging and profiling Linux programs. With its tool suite you can automatically detect many memory management and threading bugs, avoiding hours of frustrating bug-hunting and making your programs more stable. You can also perform detailed profiling to help speed up your programs and use Valgrind to build new tools. The Valgrind distribution currently includes six production-quality tools: * a memory error detector (Memcheck) * two thread error detectors (Helgrind and DRD) * a cache and branch-prediction profiler (Cachegrind) * a call-graph generating cache and branch-prediction profiler (Callgrind) * a heap profiler (Massif) It also includes three experimental tools: * a stack/global array overrun detector (SGCheck) * a second heap profiler that examines how heap blocks are used (DHAT) * a SimPoint basic block vector generator (BBV)
You now have a full guide on how to install
yum package managers.
Also, we showed how to update manually as a single package and different ways to uninstall
