[Vol-users] Linux profile w/LiME not working

I built LiME from the tarball on the project site (not latest svn) and was able to dump memory successfully (type=lime). After many trials and tribulations I was able to get the Volatility profile built for CentOS 5.3x64 (had to remove pmem from the Makefile). I put the profile in the correct directory, and vol.py --info lists it as expected, however when I try to use the profile with the memory image I get an error.

On a hunch I checked the directory I built the profile in (copied headers & source from the target system):

What am I missing?
