Hi All,

I am trying to Cross compile the Oprofile-0.96 for ARM Cortex A9 target board.
I am facing issue while cross compiling the oprofile for target.

when I issue command the for configuration like
./configure --host=arm-linux --with-kernel-support

 I am getting the error as mentioned below.

"checking for C compiler default output file name...
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details."


Here I attached the log file config.log for the reference.

Also I am facing another issue with pre-built binaries of oprofile 0.95

I have pre-built binaries for the ARM board of Oprofile version 0.95

I compiled the kernel and build the oprofile.ko module.
I inserted the module oprofile.ko into the kernel and it is successful

The dmesg output will gives like

# dmesg | grep oprofile
oprofile: using arm/armv7

when I tried to run the command  opcontol --init on the target(ARM Cortex A9)

I am getting the error like

cpu_type 'unset' is not valid
you should upgrade oprofile or force the use of timer mode


I tried to find the cpu_type from the entry
cat /dev/oprofile/cpu_type
I can able read the cpu_type as arm/armv7-ca9

But when I run any commands on the target like opcontrol or ophelp or oprofiled

I am always getting the error like cpu_type 'unset' is not valid

Can anyone help me how to solve the above issues and how to steps to run the Oprofile on the target board.



Thanks in Advance,
Durga Prasad.
