Valgrind – OCI: Suppressions file FTW!Posted: March 23, 2009

The solution in this case is a suppresions file for Valgrind. After spending a good deal of time unsuccsesfuly trying to get one I had to do it myself and upload it for the next one to run into this problem:
– Link to the file: Valgrind / OCI suppressions.
