debuginfo-install — install debuginfo packages and their dependencies

Synopsis

debuginfo-install package

Description

debuginfo-install is a program which installs the RPMs needed to debug the specified package. The package argument can be a wildcard, but will only match installed packages. debuginfo-install will then enable any debuginfo repositories, and install the relevant debuginfo rpm.

Examples

Download and install all the RPMs needed to debug the kernel RPM:
debuginfo-install kernel

Warning Messages

Could not find debuginfo for:
You may sometimes see warning messages about certain packages not being found if you run debuginfo-install for a wildcard or glob. Debuginfo packages are not necessary for "noarch" RPMs; these will generate a warning message. Additionally, On 64-bit systems, no multilib debuginfo packages are published, so if you have 32-bit packages installed, these will also generate warning messages.

Files

As debuginfo-install uses YUM libraries for retrieving all the information, it relies on YUM configuration for its default values like which repositories to use. Consult YUM documentation for details:

/etc/yum.conf
/etc/yum/repos.d/
/var/cache/yum/
