Can SystemTap debuginfo be placed somewhere else?

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • Can SystemTap debuginfo be placed somewhere else?
  • I don't have sufficient root filesystem space to install kernel-debuginfo.
  • There simply is not enough space on the server and extending / root partition would be a massive task.
  • Can stap debug info be placed in another directory which has free space?
  • RPM install fails with:
installing package kernel-debuginfo... needs 1435MB on the / filesystem
