perf-3.6.1-1.fc18.ppc64p7 records data it can't parse
Last modified: 2012-12-21 10:38:44 EST
'perf record' emits a perf.data such that 'perf report' throws:
0x3d1e0 [0x20]: failed to process type: 9
I'm only seeing this on ppc64 so far.
Not seeing this anymore, so, cool.
I saw this today too, on amd64. "perf report" worked, but "perf report -s dso" failed with this error.
I suspect this is possibly from having done kernel upgrades via yum, but having not rebooted yet. 3.6.10-2.fc17 is installed, but I'm still running 3.6.9-2.fc17.x86_64
(So probably NOTABUG, but this might help anyone googling this error...)
