Unfortunately, I think I'm stuck on this version. I have linux version
2.6.30 as a base, this is what Freescale ported to the platform I am
using. My understanding is that 0.12.20 is the highest version which
supports trace version 2.3. I have version 0.159 of LTTng - I believe
that this is the highest version supported by 2.6.30 (tho I can't recall
why I think that, as the compatibility matrix says I should be able to
go up to 0.170)
Given that I need to be on Linux 2.6.30 - what are my best versions to

Oh, I thought you were viewing your trace with the Eclipse TMF LTTng
viewer. lttv-gui is indeed the current "stable" tool to use.
LTTV 0.12.20 is quite old though. There might be bugs in it that were
fixed since then. Can you try gathering a trace with the latest LTTng
version and try to view it with LTTV, so we can figure out if the
problem is still there before we start looking for it ?
