Description Eric Bachalo 2009-02-13 14:01:07 EST
Description of problem:
The section on Installing and Setup in SystemTap Beginner's Guide I believe should mention the debuginfo-install tool for installing kernel (and other packages) debug-info rpms.  It is simpler than installing and running scripts if the person is trying out systemtap on current latest kernel.

thanks Eric. I've updated the guide to instruct  users to use yum install and debuginfo-install instead of the automated script. temporary build available here:
