Introducing debuginfod service for Tumbleweed
We are happy to pre-announce a new service entering the openSUSE world:
debuginfod is an HTTP file server that serves debugging resources to debugger-like tools.
Instead of using the old way to install the needed debugging packages one by one as root like:
zypper install $package-debuginfo
the new debuginfod service lets you debug anywhere, anytime.
Right now the service serves only openSUSE Tumbleweed packages for the x86_64 architecture and runs in an experimental mode.
The simple solution to use the debuginfod for openSUSE Tumbleweed is:
export DEBUGINFOD_URLS="https://debuginfod.opensuse.org/" gdb ...
For every lookup, the client will send a query to the debuginfod server and get's back the requested information, allowing to just download the debugging binaries you really need.
