NAME         top

       debuginfo-install - install debuginfo packages and their dependencies

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

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.
