Valgrind Invalid write of size 8 with QGLBuffer map

  • I am using Qt + OpenGL + GLSL to draw a lot points in a 3D scene and I need to change the color of some points.

    To initialize the color VBO I did that:

    @cores = new QVector3D[num_vertices];
    for(int i = 0; i < num_vertices; i++)
    cores[i] = QVector3D(1.0, 1.0, 1.0);
    m_vboCores = new QGLBuffer(QGLBuffer::VertexBuffer);
    m_vboCores->allocate(cores, num_vertices*sizeof(QVector3D));@

    In the application I change the value of some elements in cores vector, and in the paintGL function I am doing that:

    QVector3D vCores = (QVector3D) m_vboCores->map(QGLBuffer::WriteOnly);
    for(i = 0; i < num_vertices; i++)
    vCores[i] = cores[i];
    m_shaderProgram->setAttributeBuffer("Cor_Vertice", GL_FLOAT, 0, 3, 0);@

    And Valgrind says that are invalid write in this line:

    @vCores[i] = cores[i];@

    But I have used printf to check the value of i, and the index i is not out of bound... What can I doing wrong?

    Or how can I check the size of memory "returned" by


  • I tested this code in other machines and in some of them it worked well, so the problem looks be in some combination of hardware + kernel + video driver + system libraries.
