The -devel and -debuginfo RPMs must match the running kernel exactly, so you may need to specify the version strings to yum. The [[http://sourceware.org/git/gitweb.cgi?p=systemtap.git;a=blob_plain;f=stap-prep|stap-prep]] script can help determine the exact versions needed.

SystemTap on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5

SystemTap can be installed on a RHEL 5 system that has a connection to RHN with the following commands:

yum install systemtap kernel-devel
yum --enablerepo=rhel-debuginfo install kernel-debuginfo

The -devel and -debuginfo RPMs must match the running kernel exactly, so you may need to specify the version strings to yum. The stap-prep script can help determine the exact versions needed.

To verify that the installed version of SystemTap is working run the following commands as root:

yum install systemtap-testsuite
cd /usr/share/systemtap/testsuite
make installcheck
