  1. Bug#405810: Please provide package with vmlinuX, similar to kernel-debuginfo on redhat

    The problem is that the vmlinuz file in /boot and modules in
    /lib/modules do not carry debug symbols. Therefor the vmlinux
    and unstripped modules would be needed in a linux-debug-2.6.x-x-all
    package carrying these would be nice. See the following discussion
    about systemtap for example:

    http://sources.redhat.com/ml/systemt.../msg00048.html

    This is not a issue for people building their own kernels, but
    for people tracing production systems running released debian
    kernels, where no debuginfo is preserved from the build.

    "rm -rf" only sounds scary if you don't have backups

    As a workaround for this if you want the kernel symbols for OProfile,
    you can use this script instead of opreport:
    http://marc.info/?l=oprofile-list&m=...749918466&q=p3

    It fetches kernel symbol information from /proc/kallsyms and lists
    them in a format identical to what opreport -l uses.
