Can't run intel power gadget

Hello guys,

First time posting here. I'm trying to monitor my CPU activity with the intel power-gadget tool, that can be found here :

As the Readme file said, I execute the following lines

$ make $ ./power_gadget -e 1000 -d 10

I obtain the following error :

"RAPL not supported, or machine model 406e3 not recognized. Init failed!"

Googling my issue didn't bring me any answer. Any clue about the reason of this issue ?

The CPU I am using (Skylake i7-6600U @2.60GHz) should be supported right ?

Best regards

To make it work, I've added this line:

case 0x406c0: /* Skylake */

in rapl.c before line 269 (to add it next to Haswell, IvyBridge and so on). Seems they didn't update it in a while.
