VTune Build Error on SLES 11


Hi guys,

I am currently using the SGI Altix 4700 system running on Itanium 2 and the OS is SLES11 ( ).

I downloaded the latest VTune release (Version: 9.1 Build: 9.1 Update7-401) which according to the release note supports SLES11. However it failed so I tried to build the driver by refering to HOWTO-BUILD-VTUNE-DRIVER manual and executed the following:


and the following is the error message:

** ERROR: Unable to detect legacy Perfmon2 kernel int erface**

I found that perfmon2 is installed in the system, so could someone hint me what could be the culprit here.
