Description Eric Smith 2006-08-26 20:55:49 UTC
Published Fedora Core updates should include the debuginfo RPMs, so that a yum
update can update the debuginfo as well as the base package.

For example, on a machine I'm using for software development, I recently did an
update which upgraded to a new gtk2 package, but the debuginfo was not upgraded,
so I had to download the SRPM and build the package myself, when all I needed
was the debuginfo which was created when the package was built for distribution.

Since Bugzilla forces me to select a component, I'm entering this under yum, but
it's not actually a bug in yum (as far as I know; since the updates directory
doesn't include debuginfo packages, I can't test whether yum will update them).

look in your /etc/yum.repos.d/fedora-updates.repo

you should have an entry named [updates-debuginfo]

if you enable that entry then you will have them.

I just checked on my fc5 box and it's there.
