HI friends

I installed codeanalyst-2_13_2_44-Ubuntu1010Desktop32bit-Public. But when I run the file, it shows the error dialog box

Oprofile daemon failed to start.

Slate /var/lib/oprofile/lock exists and no Oprofile daemon  currently running

Also I didnt find any lock file in /var/lib/oprofile folder, but it asks whether to remove the lock file.

What does that above error meaning.

How to solve it

Please help me to solve this error.

Thank You.
