Support for 2.6 kernel?

Hello,

I was wondering when there will be a version of vtune that supports the 2.6 kernel instead of just the 2.4 kernel which is now the case as i understand from the release notes. I also see there is a commercial version of a vtune-alike program here from intel. Does this support 2.6 kernel?
If there is no solution yet, when is the release planned of a version with this feature.

Support for 2.6 kernel is not yet released. If you have the paid-up version, and have a need for it, you might try submitting an issue on premier.intel.com asking to try out a pre-release version. Currently, it's a little lacking in polish as far as installation is concerned. Your license would be good for an upgrade within its term.

Actually the current release of the VTune for linux product, VTune 3.0, supports several SuSE 2.6 kernels (see release notes for exact details).
Support for RH 2.6 is forthcoming.

The VTune analyzer is a product for sale. You need to purchase it to use it. Unless, you want to use to for non-commercial reasons.

I'm also interested in this, but so far failing to get onto the premium site.
Is there any way to work round it? I've seen a suggestion that adding
extern void *sys_call_table;
EXPORT_SYMBOL(sys_call_table);
...into kallsyms.c and rebuilding the kernel might help, but it doesn't for me.
Alternatively, is there any way to manually map the addresses that VTune repots into symbols? I can't seem to reconcile them with /proc/kallsyms.

Jeff,
The release specify support for Suse 9.0 for Itanium version, kernel version 2.65_7.97. Will VTune similar support Suse 9.0 for Itanium SP1, kernel version 2.65_7.139, e.g. ship a driver as part of the package?
Regards,
Max
