Pinned topic Purify compatibility with CentOS, GCC versions?

‏2012-03-29T10:33:50Z |
I am trying to use Rational Purify 7.0.1 for my application. M/c configuration: CentOS 6.1, GCC 4.4.6 20110731.
I compile a simple hello world program through Purify but it results in lots of errors. Compiling it without Purify executes well. I just do a “purify g++ -g main.cpp”. Before I mention the errors, I want to know the compatibility of Purify with configuration stated above. If not supported, which latest version of CentOS is supported. Additionally, which GCC version can I use and are 32bit/64bit supported?

The errors are of type,
a) “Purify engine: Error: CreateNewInfo: Apparent overlapping of instructions detected at 0x1354ae”
b) “Purify engine: Error: At 0x133371: Live code was not checked for copy sequences. During execution, you may experience spurious UMRs that should have been classified as UMCs (uninitialized copy sequences)”
c) “Purify engine: Warning: patch_cfa_instructions: BLOCK parse error”

    Hi H.S.,

    Purify 7.0.1 (released Oct 2009) only supports up to RHEL 5.4, so we would
    only expect that version to work on CentOS 5.4.

    Purify 7.0.1 iFix 002 (released Oct 2010) supports up to RHEL 5.5. In order
    to support RHEL 6.1, please contact your local Tech Support team. They can
    give you access to a Limited Availability iFix (patch release) which provides
    support for RHEL 6.1 (and CentOS 6.1).

    Best regards,
    Don
