Howto install a debugging kernel in debian?
I got the problem, that I need to install a kernel which creates debugger
informations in dmesg.
I already built a kernel with activated debug, when I discovered, that debian
already offers a package with built in debug: linux-image-2.6.39-2-amd64-dbg!
But when I installed this, there was only the no-debugging kernel below /boot.
Is there a non destructive and easy way to start the debugging kernel (which I
found below /usr/lib/debug/ ), without to change my whole system? I just need
to start this kernel only once, so I can send the kernel developer the needed
dmesg file. After that I want to revert back to the running kernel.
You might understand, that I do not want to change (and possible kill) my
system or working for hours and hours for only creating a simple dmesg
For those, who are interested in the kernel bug, take a look here:
Thanks for any help!
