VTune 2022.2.0 vtsspp driver failed to load on Ubuntu 18.04

Hi, I have installed VTune 2022.2.0 using the Standalone/Offline installer on Ubuntu 18.04, kernel version 5.4.0-107-generic.

 

After many attempts, I'm unable to install the vtsspp driver.

 

1. I attempted to build Sampling Drivers normally...

Output from attempting to build all the Sampling Drivers:

I have a VTune group that contains both my normal ubuntu user and the root user:

ubuntu@ubuntu:$ grep '^vtune:' /etc/group
vtune:x:1001:ubuntu,root

I've run the vtune-self-checker and attached the output log.txt file to this post.

 

Please help, I'm at a loss as to what I can try next. 

 

Thank you.
