Cannot use CodeAnalyst on OpenSuSE 11.2

 Hello everyone,

 I have a relatively fresh installation of OpenSuSE 11.2 installed on a Athlon II X2 250 CPU. I have installed Amd CodeAnalyst from opensuse's standard repository (the opensource edition).

  No matter what I do, I cannot profile any application on my machine. The error message I receive is "Error starting profile: This user does not have sufficient permission to run a profile. Please make sure: You are a root or a member of amdca group blabla".

 The thing is, I receive this error message even when I run CodeAnalyst as root! I have also tried using a regular user (member of "amdca" group, which has permission to sudo).

 So, what am I doing wrong?


 Sincerely yours,

 an AMD fan from the K7 Duron days.
