SYNOPSIS         top

       debuginfo-install package

DESCRIPTION         top

       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         top

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


       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.
