This is a sampling profiler that uses a kernel module, sysprof-module,
Sysprof is a sampling profiler that uses a kernel module, sysprof-module.ko,
to generate stacktraces which are then interpreted by the userspace
program "sysprof".

- You need gtk+ 2.4.0 or better. If you are using gtk+ 2.6 or newer
you also need libglade cvs HEAD.
- You need a 2.6 kernel. On SMP kernels the module seems to crash the system
from time to time, so you might want to stick with UP kernels.
- You need a 2.6 kernel. On SMP kernels the module produces unreliable data.
- The module must be compiled with the same compiler that compiled the
