Description Christos Triantafyllidis 2012-09-28 07:32:32 EDT
Description of problem:

In https://access.redhat.com/knowledge/docs/en-US/Red_Hat_Enterprise_Linux/6/html/SystemTap_Beginners_Guide/using-systemtap.html

the guide mentions configuring a new repository:

name=Red Hat Enterprise Linux $releasever - $basearch - Debug

This URL doesn't contain any debuginfo packages as:

"Things works a bit differently in RHEL6 with the RHN channels."

The procedure has changed and the systemtap upstream documentation has changed:

Could you please update the website documentation too?

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
not applicable

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Setup a repository as defined in the above documentation
2. Check the output of "yum repolist"
Actual results:

Listing debuginfo packages

Additional info:
Similar bugzilla was raised in past and closed when the systemtap package was updated.

Comment 4 François Cami 2012-10-04 07:13:00 EDT
This bug was created due to a support request I initiated because the SystemTap documentation on redhat.com is obsolete.
Please do not close and mark as duplicate of a bug I do not have access rights to.
