I'm using valgrind in my code (Ubuntu 10.10 32bits, IPP7) and everything seems to be working well... but the valgrind report looks like this:
==4643== Command: ./badDFT2 ../confFiles/dft1D1Lto2D1L.cfg
==4643== Syscall param sched_setaffinity(mask) points to unaddressable byte(s)

==4643== ERROR SUMMARY: 4 errors from 2 contexts (suppressed: 54 from 12)
So I'm lost about where to find those two errors at the beginning of the report since my code seems to be doing what it's supossed to do without memory leaks but there is something weird when loading the IPP libraries. And from what I understand (the 'still reachable: 5401 bytes in 33 blocks' part), it seems that the IPP libraries stay loaded.
Is there something I'm forgetting to do in my code like unload IPP or something similar??? Thanks for any help,

Ok now I'm getting a bunch of errors like:

Don't know what it means and don't know how to get rid off them so I need some help here. Thanks,
