Error when building the sampling driver of vtune 9.1

Jump to solution
Hi. When I installed VTune 9.1 on Redhat Enterprise Server 5.1, whose kernalwas Linux 2.6.18-53.el5xen, I got an error when building the sampling driver. The error log was below:

VTune Analyzer doesn't support on XEN based operation system.

Please check if your OS is supported in release notes.

Build a vtune driver for running OS, ensure you have corresponding Linux* kernel source installed

You mean my kernel Linux 2.6.18-53.el5xen is an XEN based OS and VTune doesn't support it, then I should install another OS which issupported for using VTune Analyzer?

Arethere anyother solutions to solve the driver problem? The machine I work on is a server in our lab, so Iam notpermitted toreinstall OS on it.

There is no way to install current product on XEN based OS, you may find other machine to install supported OS. See product's system requirements - http://www.intel.com/cd/software/products/asmo-na/eng/vtune/vlin/239147.htm

The Red Hat distros come with an alternate non-Xen kernel, which can be added as a boot option, leaving the Xen installation in place.

Hi, I have the same problem building the sampling driver.
I am running :
MontaVista Linux Version 5.0, Carrier Grade Edition (0704580)
My uname -m -r -v output:
2.6.21_mvlcge500-dbe2 #1 SMP PREEMPT Sat Apr 18 14:35:59 CDT 2009 x86_64

Is this also not supported? Any relevant information is appreciated.

thanks.

Any plans on supporting CGE5? CGE4 is very old, MontaVista is already on release 6.
One more question - are Nehalem chips supported, and if not, is there a timeline?
Thanks!

Current VTune supports Nehalem family chips. They would be referred to as Core i7.
