Actual results:
/tmp/stapcCEZR9/stap_fdbf0bd9d6a72ae8448ba474df9aa739_626.c: In function 'function_ppid':
/tmp/stapcCEZR9/stap_fdbf0bd9d6a72ae8448ba474df9aa739_626.c:131: error: 'struct task_struct' has no member named 'parent'

Comment 1 Frank Ch. Eigler 2008-09-02 09:25:15 EDT
David, I didn't see an attached script.
A hand-made one using ppid() worked fine with the current
release of systemtap (0.7) on fc9.  Please try that one.

Seems my attachment got lost on the way... But yes, systemtap-0.7-1 (stuck in updates-testing) indeed solves the problem (-:
