VTune works for Suse10

In case anyone was wondering, VTune works just fine on Suse10, is didn't work from the default install. The driver had to be built manually! I just had to share the good news :)

The user can find system requirements for all latest products at http://software.intel.com/en-us/articles/intel-software-products-system-requirements/

SuSE* Linux* 10 (kernel 2.6.13-15) is default supported, if you enter vtune/vdk directory - vtune_drv-32_64-2.6.13-15-smpsmp.ko for SuSE* Linux* 10can be found, this is a pre-built driver for the installer to load in your system.

If your kernel version is sightly different - you have to build/load corresponding driver by yourself, do them in vtune/vdk/src. 1) ./build-driver, 2)./insmod-vtune, 3) ./install-boot-script --install

For SuSE systems, there are preliminary steps for driver build, with documentation buried in the vtune docs directory. The kernel source has to be processed (probably with root privilege) by 'make prepare;make cloneconfig'
These steps have to be repeated each time you get an updated kernel. It seems unlikely you would want to be running an original SLES10 kernel.
