Today I received an Intel Parallel Studio XE Cluster Edition license for Linux, I tested VTune's against Ubuntu 16.04, I have never used it before but it was clear that the SW was missing some functionality.
After some troubleshooting and thanks to this guide: https://software.intel.com/en-us/sep_driver, found that the problem was the vtsspp driver, this failed to compile during installation.
After modifying the #if condition (kernel version) in both files: vtsspp/module.c (Line 755) and vtsspp/collector.c (Line 1811) the SW compiled and installed successfully, bringing VTune's functionality back.

Thank you for reporting this issue and describing the fix. Ubuntu backported changes to module.h to kernel 4.4, and support for this is planned for the 2017 release.
which version did you use, the latest update 3 package?
I had some issues with newer Ubuntu's and the 2016 base version so that I needed to downgrade my OS.
Would be good to know the current state.
So it seems like the 2017 releases are out (at least, I downloaded Parallel Studio XE Pro 2017 edition). Is this fixed there? I'm going through installation with 16.04 right now and want to confirm VTune is functional.
