Not sure if this is the right forum, so apologies in advance if not.
I run pgf95 7.2-4 on a RHE5.0 system and when I use pgf95-generated executable with the valgrind memcheck tool, SELinux gives me a warning:
SELinux is preventing memcheck from loading /usr/local/pgi/linux86/7.2-4/lib/libpgc.so which requires text relocation.
The memcheck application attempted to load /usr/local/pgi/linux86/7.2-4/lib/libpgc.so which requires text relocation. This is a potential security problem. Most libraries do not need this permission. Libraries are sometimes coded incorrectly and request this permission. The SELinux Memory Protection Tests web page explains how to remove this requirement. You can configure SELinux temporarily to allow /usr/local/pgi/linux86/7.2-4/lib/libpgc.so to use relocation as a workaround, until the library is fixed. Please file a bug report against this package.
Is this issue with text relocation something PGI is aware of and looking to fix (assuming the above assessment is accurate)? Fixed in a later version?
FWIW, g95 and gfortran don’t exhibit the problem when their executables are run through valgrind
