- Many diagnostic and debugging utilities, including crash, SystemTap, oprofile, and gdb, require the "debuginfo" version of a package to be fully functional. For example, to analyze a kernel vmcore using crash, the kernel-debuginfo package must be installed. To analyze a program core file using gdb, the debuginfo package corresponding to the program that created the core file must first be installed.
- Is there a customer-accessible place where a consolidated set of '/usr/lib/debug' for certain packages can be found?
