    That's not the tools that's broken. It's because you do not have your kernel development packages installed.

    NVAx~GTX 260~NV50 seems to be supported already, I sent a mmiotrace some months ago and recently darktama fixed lots of code. As a result even TTM/KMS w\ kernel 2.6.31-rc1 works so nicely. I remember G80 being tricky and clever GPUs, try the latest git for yourself and see what works .

    How do you make mmiotrace? I've got Fedora 11 with 2.6.30 kernel and I cannot find any howto to make it. I found /Documentation/tracers/mmiotrace.txt but it isn't really helpful. Thanks for answer.
