Comment 1 William Cohen 2006-11-20 17:38:17 EST
The next time the packages are built this will be corrected (this doesn't
warrant a rebuild itself). The description has been changed in the spec files
for devel, FC-6, and RHEL-5 branches of oprofile. The description has been
changed to:

OProfile is a profiling system for systems running Linux. The
profiling runs transparently during the background, and profile data
can be collected at any time. OProfile makes use of the hardware performance
counters provided on Intel P6, and AMD Athlon family processors, and can use
the RTC for profiling on other x86 processor types.

See the HTML documentation for further details.
