Just Launched: You can now import projects and releases from Google Code onto SourceForge
We are excited to release new functionality to enable a 1-click import from Google Code onto the Allura platform on SourceForge. You can import tickets, wikis, source, releases, and more with a few simple steps. Read More
I am disappointed that you guys got rid of the shorter commands like op_dump
and instead have to type all this opcontrol --what-i-want stuff. then when
I typed opcontrol --stop and it pleasantly said, sorry, you must do
--shutdown, I got angry. of course, that was probably because I had already
spent a couple hours getting my redhat kernel srcrpm to build with the
sys_call_table symbol exported, but thats beside the point.
anyway, it seems like you guys are taking some bad interface design ideas
from ipchains and taking it even further IMHO.
so to summarize:
a. -'s are extra keys
b. -'s are a stretch for fingers
c. long options as commands for programs that do not generally operate on
specified files dont make any sense!
d. caring about users is good!
e. redhat sucks for breaking oprofile
f. oprofile still kicks ass

We'll take patches for short-form arguments for every opcontrol option.
How do you plan to encode --ctr0-event in a short form ? You could use
-0, but then you also have to deal with --ctr0-count etc. *and* the > 10
counters on Alpha.
Furthermore, I suggest you check out the "alias" command of your shell.

Use "counter 0" and "event 0" in some other kind of syntax.

If there is a specific problem with the OProfile that Red Hat
distributes, you can file a bugzilla report,
https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/index.cgi. There is a category for
oprofile bugs. Given OProfile has code both in the kernel and user space
and OProfile's rapid development it is sometime hard to make one version
kernel work with the latest oprofile CVS snapshot. More recent Red Hat
kernel use a backport of the Linux 2.5 oprofilefs, so hopefully the
breakage will be less common.

You broke it for 7.3
