I am currently using the SGI Altix 4700 system running on Itanium 2 and the OS is SLES11. The proble m is that vtune does not support the SLES11 kernel hence I need to build the driver for this platform. I followed the HO WTO-BUILD-VTUNE-DRIVER manual and executed the following:
and the following is the error message:

I found that perfmon2 is installed in the system, so could someone hint me what could be the culprit here.
