No

Only the RTC_INTERRUPTS event is available on P4 Xeon
Foster under non-SMP kernel 2.4.22 with HT disabled in
BIOS.

I'm using oprofile 0.9 (0.9.1 doesn't build for me, but
that's another issue...)

Found 1 CPU
Family: 15 Model: 4 Stepping: 1 Type: 0
CPU Model: P4 Xeon (Foster) Original OEM
Processor name string: Intel(R)
Pentium(R) 4 CPU 3.40GHz

Processor serial: xxx
Number of logical processors supported within the
physical package: 1
-- snip --

The attached patch makes the Xeon Foster recognized as
a P4, but I've only tested a handful of events (which
so far work fine).

Regards,
Thomas

    right, this fix is in the 2.6 driver but has not been
    backported to the 2.4 module, thanks for the report; I'll do
    it before 0.9.2.

    You're able to build 0.9 but not 0.9.1, a bit surprising. If
    this not a distribution related problem we'll like to hear
    about it.

    I fixed the problem you pointed (and also backported from
    2.6 some change related to prescott processor).

    I ran too in a compilation failure and fixed it : wrong use
    of fastcall in function definition with gcc 3.3 (and
    probably older compiler).

    regards,
