Vtune 9.0U7-1448 on unsupported platform

Hi,

I try to install vtune 9.0U7-1448 on a 64bit machine with (Opensuse 11; kernel 2.6.25.5-1.1-default; SMP; I know is not supported) but let's have a shot.

The problem is the driver that does not build.

Here is the output of the build-driver script.

green:/opt/intel/vtune/vdk/src # ./build-driver

Check /opt/intel/vtune/vdk/src/doc/HOWTO-BUILD-VTUNE-DRIVER. Presumably, the steps specified for SLES10 and OpenSuSE 10.x are required: prepare the kernel source directory by make cloneconfig;make prepare, then run ./build-driver .
Once you have built the driver, if you want insmod-vtune to run automatically at boot, try sym linking it into the vdk directory. By the way, the driver build steps for PTU are the same.
One would think, if Intel and Novell would cooperate, OpenSuSE could be made fully supported, along with SLES10.

Hi,

Thank you for the answer.
The error that I have reported before came after I did the manual preparation of the kernel sourcesl as is suggested in the indicated source and your email..

Hi,

I am having the same problem with Suse 11 and Vtune 9..007. Is there an update/patch for this problem in the near future?

Thanks

Do you encounter the same problem with Intel VTune Analyzer 9.1 as well?

Also, can you please point me to the ISO image for the specific OS version you used so that I can try reproducing the problem at my end?

Please note that Intel VTune Analyzer is verified on the OSes listed in http://www3.intel.com/cd/software/products/asmo-na/eng/239147.htm- the driver may or may not build on other versions.
