start 0.8.1 release notes
--- NEW FILE: oprofile-0.8.1 ---
OProfile is a powerful system-wide profiler for Linux. Read
more at http://oprofile.sf.net
OProfile 0.8.1 has been released. OProfile is still in alpha,
but has been proven stable for many users.
The post-profiling tools work on x86-64 again.
Over-writing binaries can cause oprofiled to abort (bug #931871).
On IA-64, some firmware revisions cause problems with OProfile (bug #931883).
The x86-64 port for 2.4 kernels seems to be broken (bug #840915).
Power management on laptops can be incompatible with OProfile in 2.4 (bug #554927).
Many Alpha ev67 events do not work (bug #931875).
A few Pentium IV events do not work (bug #841099).
The pre-emptable kernel option is not supported in 2.4 (bug #478516).
For 2.2 kernels, the module must be compiled as the same user
that owns the kernel source tree.
nosmp is not supported in kernels before 2.4.10 (bug #463087).
