Did Pakistan know about Osama's hideout

Had Pakistan known about Osama Bin Laden's Abbotabad hideout, Americans would have found no one in that compound. When the operation against Al Qaeda and Taliban operatives in Pakistani territory started, the US gave reliable intelligence about their presence to Pakistani law enforcement agencies.
What forced the US to start doing these operations itself was tendency in certain elements in Pakistani law enforcement agencies who would one way or other forewarn the terrorists , allowing them to escape. American had to deploy drones to carry out these operations. Had Pakistan complied with the US, drone would not have been used in strikes.
Pakistanis were not aware about Osama's presence in that compound and they were also not informed about the operation  before hand and that is why the US is now celebrating a successful operation.
