is the perf tool available for BBB ?

Hello there,

I am a TA for a class that uses BBB with Angstrom as a demo board and the perf tool is very much needed for couple projects the students have to work on.

i couldn’t find a perf installation repository to install it directly to the BBB and it seems you can’t cross-compile it.

anybody can help me with this ?

i tried Ubuntu and i installed linux-tools and the perf tool is in the bin directory but it doesn’t do anything.

when i run perf --help , the terminal will say that i can’t find perf.

any ideas ?
