Description John Reiser 2003-10-03 17:59:04 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1) Gecko/20031002

Description of problem:
The kernel module oprofile seems to be omitted from the kernel .rpm, which means
that the oprofile applications will not run.

As root ('#' prompt from bash):
-----
# opcontrol --init
modprobe: Can't locate module oprofile
modprobe: Can't locate module oprofile
Kernel doesn't support oprofile
# /sbin/lsmod | grep oprof
#     ## empty: no oprofile module loaded
# find /lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2082.nptl -name '*oprof*'
#     ## empty: no oprofile module in .rpm
# grep OPROFILE /boot/config-2.4.22-1.2082.nptl
CONFIG_OPROFILE=m     ## inconsistent with above attempts at usage
# rpm -qa | grep oprofile
oprofile-0.7cvs-0.20030829.6
# 
-----


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kernel-2.4.22-1.2082.nptl.i686.rpm

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. up2date install kernel-2.4.22-1.2082.nptl.i686.rpm
2. reboot
3. opcontrol --init
    

Actual Results:  modprobe: Can't locate module oprofile
modprobe: Can't locate module oprofile
Kernel doesn't support oprofile

Expected Results:  oprofile module installed and initialized.

Additional info:
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2003-10-03 23:35:30 EDT
It's in the SMP kernel.
Comment 2 Dave Jones 2003-10-08 21:48:57 EDT
This is due to us not enabling APIC on UP kernels.
AFAIK, this policy isn't going to change.
