Make test returns error: pfm_initialize(): not supported

Hi,

I am trying to collect cache performance statistics with PAPI 4.1.0. It is an Intel Core i7 (Nehalem) processor. The OS is linux 2.6.31 Ubuntu 9.10 with perfctr 2.6.x installed.

When I run the test program using "make test" I got an error "pfm_initialize(): not supported" followed by "pfmlib not initialized." I checked the functionality perfctr by running programs in the "./example" directory like "perfex" and they all look good. Is there any thing I have missed?

I am kind of new on this, so sorry if somebody has justified before. I really appreciate any advice you could give me.

I'm having the same issue. Running configure and make gives all of the expected results, but make test gives
PAPI Error: pfm_initialize(): not supported.
as soon as ctests/zero calls PAPI_library_init.
I'm building on a pretty standard x86 linux platform with 4 dual core Xeon processors. The kernel is 2.6.32 and unpatched.
Does anyone have any insight as to what may have caused this error previously?
