NAME
stap-prep - prepare system for systemtap use
SYNOPSIS
stap-prep [ KERNEL_VERSION ]
DESCRIPTION
The stap-prep executable prepares the system for systemtap use by installing kernel headers, debug symbols and build tools that match the currently running kernel or optionally the kernel version given by the user. The exact behavior of stap-prep may be customized by the distribution maintainers. It might for example only give suggestions and not actu- ally install the required packages if that is difficult to automate.
EXAMPLES
$ stap-prep Please install linux-image-3.2.0-2-amd64-dbg
