I have been trying to get dprobes working to trace some kernel functions with LTT.

I am using SuSE 9.2, but it does not seem to have the LTT patches against the kernel. So I pulled a kernel from SLES9, and compiled with all the appropriate switches in the .config and changes dprobes requires per the README.dpcc.

Compiling and running with the SLES9 kernel on SuSE 9.2 seems OK, but when I compile something like tut14.dpc, I just get a segmentation violation when it reads the symbol table in /usr/src/linux/vmlinux.

dprobes itself seems OK, "dprobes -q -a -x" returns "No information returned." as it should.

Please advise what to check to get dpcc working.
