Description Christopher Beland 2009-01-16 14:49:22 EST
Based on my experiences with Bug 455875, I would recommend the "debuginfo-install" manpage be expanded to include something like the following:

For example, to install debuginfo for all install packages, you can do "debuginfo-install \*".

No debuginfo packages are necessary for "noarch" RPMs; these will generate a warning message.

On 64-bit systems, no multilib debuginfo packages are published, so if you have 32-bit packages installed, these will also generate warning messages.  All Fedora-supplied packages are available in 64-bit versions, so debugging of 32-bit packages on 64-bit systems is rarely needed and not officially supported.

Reporting against version: yum-utils-1.1.19-1.fc11.noarch

I checked in this change

       Could not find debuginfo for:
              if you run debuginfo-install for a wildcard or  glob.  Debuginfo
              packages  are not necessary for "noarch" RPMs; these will gener-
              ate a warning message.  Additionally, On 64-bit systems, no mul-
              tilib  debuginfo  packages  are published, so if you have 32-bit
              packages installed, these will also generate warning messages.
