vtune sample driver RHEL 5.5 MRG

Greetings all,
I have a bank of 15 servers that are running MRG. During the install process the source was not installed due to disk space issues.
Is it possible to compile the vtune sample driver on server1 then either copy it to the other 14?

Regards,

Karl

Hi Karl,

If your 15 servers are running same Linux* kernel versions, you can build vtune sampling driver onlyin one machine, and copy .ko file to others under VTune/vdk/src, and run"insmod-vtune", "install-boot-script --install"

Does anyone have experience compiling the sampling driver on a real time kernel?
I am trying to compile on the 2.6.33.5-rt23.23.el5rt-x86_64 on RedHat 5.5.
but it keeps failing.
I have installed the .src.rpm that was provided with the kernel.
I am hoping for pointers at the minimun


Regards and thank you for the help

Possibly, a few more details might help those of us who haven't tried that specific version. For example, hidden in the readmes and comments in the makefile are hints in case it doesn't choose the right kernel source, or the kernel source needs make prepare && make cloneconfig.
Most common difficult to deal with problem IMO is when the supplied kernel source doesn't exactly match running kernel, requiring you to build a kernel which does match or find the source updates.
