If I am not too wrong, I think this is what the picture is like as far as the
mips support for oprfile goes:
Oprofile 0.9.2 release version supports mips architecture partially. Their
release notes says:
"Support for MIPS 5K, 20K, 25K, and 34K added."
However, support for R10000, R12000, R12000, RM7000, RM9000, SB1 / SB1A,
VR5432, VR5500 processors are only available through the CVS checkout:
"The R10000, R12000, R12000, RM7000, RM9000, SB1 / SB1A, VR5432, VR5500
processors are supported by the CVS version of the userspace tools; support for
further is in the queue."
If I am wrong in understanding this, please correct me.

Subject: question about oprofile support
Linux-mips.org states: (http://www.linux-mips.org/wiki/Oprofile)
"Oprofile support is available at the time of this writing only in the
Sourceforge Oprofile CVS repository; released versions are either lacking
support for MIPS or are unusable due to bugs"
I am wondering if this is still true. If we want to have oprofile support on
mips hardware, do we have to checkout the HEAD revision from oprofile cvs
repository or is it already available from the standard 0.9.3 release?
Thanks in advance to anyone who can throw any lights on this.
