- Subject: Running systemtap on Xen Fedora Core Rawhide system
After talking with Josh Stone I was able to get systemtap running on the
Fedora Core Rawhide kernel (2.6.17-1.2462.fc6xen) on x86_64 and i686.
There are two Red Hat bugzilla entries, bz#200687 and bz #197220, that
affect this. The kprobes support appears to be working in the default
xen kernels built for rawhide.
BZ#200687 points out a problem with where the kernel source
(kernel-xen-devel rpm) files are placed. There is a workaround of
chaning a symbolic link, so the "make modules" work in systemtap.
BZ#197220 points out a problems with the a dependency check in the
makefile. There is also a workaround for this problem mentioned in
bz197220 and a specific one for xen in bz200687.
