Description William Cohen 2003-09-26 19:00:42 UTC
Description of problem:

debuginfo file for /boot/vmlinux-2.4.22-20.1.2024.2.36.nptlsmp is not in the
correct place. The .debug file should be in /usr/lib/debug/boot. It is placed in 
/usr/lib/debug/lib/modules/2.4.22-1.2075.nptlsmp/vmlinux.debug. The debuginfo
file should have the same basename and end up as
/usr/lib/debug/boot/vmlinux-2.4.22-20.1.2024.2.36.nptlsmp.debug. It looks like
the debug information is being extracted before the vmlinux is placed in the
correct place.

OProfile needs the debuginfo to map kernel samples back to source code.
