I am trying to run valgrind on my executable which is of 32-bit. I am
getting the following error:

*valgrind  <executable>*

valgrind: wrong ELF executable class (eg. 32-bit instead of 64-bit)

valgrind: <executable>: cannot execute binary file

Couple of other logs which are useful:

*file <executable>*

<executable>: ELF 32-bit MSB  executable, PowerPC or cisco 4500, version 1
(SYSV), dynamically linked (uses shared libs), for GNU/Linux 2.6.16,
BuildID[sha1]=570302117aa12728043bc5263352ce95f637db35, not stripped

*valgrind -d <executable>*

--6455:1:debuglog DebugLog system started by Stage 1, level 1 logging

--6455:1:launcher no tool requested, defaulting to 'memcheck'

--6455:1:launcher no platform detected, defaulting platform to 'amd64-linux'

--6455:1:launcher launching <path>/memcheck-amd64-linux

--6455:1:debuglog DebugLog system started by Stage 2 (main), level 1
logging requested

Looks like valgrind launcher is automatically start 64bit execution, and
hence throwing the above error.

Is there a way I can run valgrind for my 32-bit image? However valgrind
executable are built to support both 32-bit and 64 bit version.
