[jolsa@krava perf]$ ./perf record -e cycles:ppp -n ls
Lowering default frequency rate to 3000.
Please consider tweaking /proc/sys/kernel/perf_event_max_sample_rate.
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument) for event (cycles:pppu).
/bin/dmesg may provide additional information.
No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured?

v2 attached, thanks
jirka

The kernel fails to add a non sampling event event
with having precise_ip set, like:

$ perf record -e cycles:ppp -n ls
Error:
The sys_perf_event_open() syscall returned with 22 (Invalid argument) for event (cycles:pppu).
/bin/dmesg may provide additional information.
No CONFIG_PERF_EVENTS=y kernel support configured?

Make sure the precise_ip is 0 when using -n option
to create non sampling event in record.
