prepare system for systemtap use


stap-prep [ KERNEL_VERSION ]


The stap-prep executable prepares the system for systemtap use by installing kernel headers, debug symbols and build tools that match the currently running kernel or optionally the kernel version given by the user.

If the debuginfod-find tool is installed and is able to fetch debuginfo for a kernel component, it is assumed to remain available later.  In this case, no debug symbols will be downloaded during stap-prep.

The exact behavior of stap-prep may be customized by the distribution maintainers. It might for example only give suggestions and not actually install the required packages if that is difficult to automate.


$ stap-prep
Please install linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64-dbg
