SystemTap fails due to missing package(kernel-debuginfo)


I'm having troubles running systemtap scripts. It fails to run with message:
Checking "/lib/modules/" failed: No such file or directory
Ensure kernel development headers & makefiles are installed.
Then I typed:

$rpm -q kernel kernel-devel kernel-debuginfo
package kernel-debuginfo is not installed
So no kernel-debuginfo, a package which I cannot find in repo. So where to get it and why it's not included in default installation if SystemTap is. It's like having Apache without tcp/ip stack.

Re: SystemTap fails due to missing package(kernel-debuginfo)

You can find all versions of packages at the koji repository.


Also to get debuginfo packages you have to enable updates-debuginfo repo,

yum --enablerepo=updates-debuginfo install kernel-debuginfo

or for the original one use

yum --enablerepo=fedora-debuginfo install kernel-debuginfo

Re: SystemTap fails due to missing package(kernel-debuginfo)

I used the "debuginfo-install" command for the first time recently and found it very helpful. If you have yum-utils installed then check the man page for it to see an example for downloading/installing kernel debuginfo packages.
