Bug Description

SRU Justification
=================

Impact
------
newt UI (TUI) is disabled with perf report if libnewt-dev is unavailable
when perf is built.

Fix
---
Ensure libnewt-dev is installed when building perf, adding the proper
Build-Depends to the linux source.

Testcase
--------
1. perf record <command>
2. perf report --tui
3. perf report --stdio

For 2, newt interface should load with the recorded data (perf.data from
record command). Text interface (--stdio) should continue to work as
before, for the third invocation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

tui mode is more user friendly and and help in better analysis of perf.data . I guess we need to update some build dependencies.

This bug is missing log files that will aid in diagnosing the problem. From a terminal window please run:

apport-collect 981717

and then change the status of the bug to 'Confirmed'.

If, due to the nature of the issue you have encountered, you are unable to run this command, please add a comment stating that fact and change the bug status to 'Confirmed'.

This change has been made by an automated script, maintained by the Ubuntu Kernel Team.
