Subject: [ptxdist] [PATCH] kernel/perf: Fix host path leakage
Date: Tue, 21 May 2024 19:14:53 +0200	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <> (raw)

The perf build scripts default to prefix=$HOME, resulting in:

	# perf script -l
	open(/home/ukl/libexec/perf-core/scripts) failed.
	Check "PERF_EXEC_PATH" env to set scripts dir.

when I run ptxdist with HOME=/home/ukl. So set prefix explicitly.

Signed-off-by: Uwe Kleine-König <>

this obviously only improves the error message to:

	open(/usr/libexec/perf-core/scripts) failed

only. Actually I'd like to call tools/perf_install. However I fail to
see how I'd do that in the kernel's install stage with the right
variables set and upstream is broken here (as of 6.9) which makes
tools/perf_install fail with:

	/bin/sh: 1: cd: can't cd to $BUILDDIR/tools/perf/tools/perf/

and I fail to see where this happens. So here comes only a partial fix
(which IMHO is worth applying anyhow).

Best regards
