Missing "-dbgsym" for a given kernel

Postby mabra » 2020-03-12 23:21

Probably someone can help.
I am looking for package "linux-image-4.19.0-0.bpo.6-amd64-dbgsym"
and more general, for other kernels too.

It's that, that installing SystemTap requires it, but I am unable to find it.
I followed the instructions on this page:
mentioned by the stap-prep command, but there
are no "-dbgsym" packages for kernels, other "-dbgsym"
packages are there.
BTW, this looks true for other kernel (had a short look on a buster box).
SystemTap is a neccecity for me.

Thanks anyway,

Code: Select all
empty@E485:~ $ aptitude search linux-image-amd64-dbg
p   linux-image-amd64-dbg                - Debugging symbols for Linux amd64 configuration
empty@E485:~ $ apt install -s linux-image-amd64-dbg
NOTE: This is only a simulation!
      apt needs root privileges for real execution.
      Keep also in mind that locking is deactivated,
      so don't depend on the relevance to the real current situation!
