How to: install SystemTap on a Debian Stable (Squeeze) system

1. Install packages:

apt-get install systemtap linux-image-`uname -r`-dbg linux-headers-`uname -r`

2. enjoy!

If you want to build your own custom kernel, do the following:

1. Use existing kernel config as a start: make oldconfig

2. make menuconfig --> see http://sourceware.org/systemtap/wiki/SystemTapWithSelfBuiltKernel for the CONFIG options you need to have enabled.

3. make-kpkg clean

4. make-kpkg --initrd kernel_image

5. install the resulting package: dpkg -i xxxx.deb.

Note: Default Debian kernel packages currently do not support UTRACE which is required for most functionality of SystemTap
