Hi again JK,
I managed to get access to a POWER5+ machine today and was able to build a
kernel and compile libpfm without trouble. I went back and read your posting
to this mailing list and found that I had misread it. I thought you
were saying that libpfm didn't compile, but you actually said that pfmon
pfmon has not been ported to ppc64 at all yet (unless you count cell as ppc64),
so it's not surprising that it doesn't compile on POWER5+ or any other POWER
pfmon is on my to-do list also, but it may be several months before it's available.
Meanwhile, I will continue testing perfmon2 on POWER5+ and create whatever patches
it takes to pass the PAPI tests.
