I manually installed the codeanalyst package from openSUSE 11.1 Contrib ( and ran it as root user. I can go through the tutorial until the step where i would actually run the program. There i receive the GUI error.

Error starting profile: Failed to setup OProfile.

When looking at /var/log/messages, I get the following line:

Oct 20 14:50:21 sedici sudo:     root : TTY=unknown ; PWD=/opt/CodeAnalyst/bin ; USER=root ; COMMAND=list

/opt/CodeAnalyst is where bin, lib64, sbin and share are located. I wonder what this 'list' command is all about. Because there is absolutely no such command in my path. I also think that the kernel oprofile module has been successfully loaded, since the 'rccodeanalyst start' script runs with no errors and i get the following, when doing 'ls /dev/oprofile':

0  2  backtrace_depth  buffer_size       cpu_buffer_size  dump    pointer_size
1  3  buffer           buffer_watershed  cpu_type         enable  stats

Thanks in advance!
