I was wondering who sets the cpu_type. I have a 64bit machine running Intel xeon with 7 processors. However the cpu_type is getting set to i386/core_2.
I went through libop/op_cpu_type.c and I could not figure out what it should be set to as I could not find out any entry there for intel x86_64.
I am having some issues with my oprofile setup and I suspect it is because of not detecting 64bit kernel. Any help would be appreciated as this is very important for me. I have a few days trying to figure out the issues.
