I am not able to install
perf for the latest linux kernel 11.3 in Ubuntu Zesty(17.04). I downloaded the Linux kernel source code for this latest stable release (from
kernel.org). I then compiled and made all necessary changes. The compilation and builds were all successful and I am now successfully able to boot this kernel. I then have problems installing
perf for this kernel. The below is the screenshot of the error message :-
$ perf WARNING: perf not found for kernel 4.11.3 You may need to install the following packages for this specific kernel: linux-tools-4.11.3-4.11.3 linux-cloud-tools-4.11.3-4.11.3 You may also want to install one of the following packages to keep up to date: linux-tools-4.11.3 linux-cloud-tools-4.11.3 akalita@tucher:~$ sudo apt-get install linux-tools-4.11.3-4.11.3 [sudo] password for akalita: Reading package lists...

I am basically not able to find the linux-tools package for this stable kernel version. I have already updated and upgraded the system and then rebooted it as well.
I have other kernel images on my system as well (older ones). But I suspect this will be a problem with each of them. What should I do ? How should I approach this problem ?
