You might be curious to see my answer below--someone on Super User suggested two header files that are definitely on the right track. +1'ed you anyways.

It certainly is old school: the book is from the mid 90's. The dated nature of the book is well compensated for by technical excellence, though. In fact, there are not so infrequent references to PDP-11's, so you are in the right ballpark with your assumption that it is an old school UNIX file. That being said, there has to be some sort of description for what I am seeking--the description of a stack frame. And that is something I am having difficulty finding.

@schaiba what system what would be? And what it refers to? x86 Ubuntu 12.10, and it refers to the stack frame, as my question says. Sorry, I don't understand what you are asking...!

@vonbrand en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stack_frame#Structure should give a good idea. The exact structure varies between implementations, though, and I want to know what it looks like on my implementation.

Oops--thought I could delete this. I have the same question posted on Super User. If I get an answer there I will link it, since it may be helpful. Sorry for double post!

comment Error when trying to install valgrind on Ubuntu 10.04
@jordanm I guess I am confused how I have mixed distributions after merely updating/upgrading aptitude on BT5? Sorry again, just trying to learn.

comment Error when trying to install valgrind on Ubuntu 10.04
@jordanm I am surprised 1) because that command seemed to mostly update the applications that BT is known for purveying, and 2) because I believe the only source that is enabled for aptitude update etc is from backtrack.com/etc. Sorry to bother you with more questions, but I really do appreciate the help... Surely BT allows updates, especially of the aforementioned app's... is there a better way to do it? Also, and more importantly, is there a way to determine the status of my current build... i.e. what I should do from here?

@jordanm Not sure if you're serious? As I said I am a beginner! I will have to learn quickly I suppose. Do you advise against the downgrading that aptitude install valgrind suggests?

@RahulPatil Many things were installed/upgraded with that command, but the same option to downgrade came up for Valgrind...!

@RahulPatil I just entered the command... says it will downgrade libc-bin, libc-dev-bin, libc6, libc6-dev, libc6-i386 and upstart. Score is 80. Is there a potential for adverse results from downgrading these packages?

@jordanm Indeed, it is not a pure Ubuntu build. I am trying to become comfortable with Backtrack 5 r3 KDE 64-bit in preparation for an internship. Do you have any advice regarding my problem? Do you imagine any other bigger problems down the road? Is there a way around them?

@sputnick Checked gcc compatability; downloaded Valgrind separately and tried to manually install (after it was installed it output an error related to the above); searched the error; tried Synaptic; searched '2.11.1-0ubuntu7.x'... now, I am a beginner, so perhaps the solution was close, but I have been working on it for several days now to no avail.
