hi all,


I am not targetting the kernel to debug, but I understand
the kernel is needed to track what my program is doing.

I am installing like this..
su root
./configure --with-kernel-support
make
make install

I don't see any errors in configure/make/make install.
I did need to add /usr/local/bin to my PATH.

When I run with
# opcontrol --no-vmlinux
FATAL: Module oprofile not found.
FATAL: Module oprofile not found.
Kernel doesn't support oprofile

Any ideas?


kernel = 2.6.12-gentoo-r6

Obtained 0.9.1 from
 http://sourceforge.net/projects/oprofile
because the .gz files I grabbed using firefox and wget from
 http://oprofile.sourceforge.net/download/
would not unpack.  (problem?)

Patched 0.9.1 with
 oprofile-0.9.1-anon.patch


thank you!!
cheers,


Mark
