F31, gnome-shell 3.34.3
I am experiencing a memory leek with gnome-shell and therefore want to run heaptrack against gnome-shell. Unfortunately, this does not work for me (heaptrack works perfectly fine with all other applications). Things I have tried:
heaptrack -p $(pidof gnome-shell) --> Results in
ptrace: Operation not permitted., even though
/proc/sys/kernel/yama/ptrace_scopeis 0. Furthermore, I tried
setcap cap_sys_ptrace=eip /usr/bin/gdb, which does not work under Fedora as
/usr/bin/gdbis actually a symbolic link to
/usr/libexec/gdb. So I did,
setcap cap_sys_ptrace=eip /usr/libexec/gdb, but I still get
ptrace: Operation not permitted.
sudo heaptrack -p $(pidof gnome-shell)--> Results in
ERROR: failed to open heaptrack output file /tmp/heaptrack_fifo36227: Permission denied (13)in the gnome-shell journal.
In both cases the heaptrack file has a size of 0 byte.
Does anyone have any ideas how this is supposed to work?
