I would like to install perfmon for using performance monitoring events on my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS server machine. I have read that Ubuntu kernel 2.6 comes with perfmon support. However, as we can see below, it looks like kernel2.6.32 doesn't have perfmon support. Could someone tell me how can get perfmon support. However, I have installed PAPI library and able to run all the tests successfully.
host kernel does not have perfmon support
