debug symbols
Where can I find debug symbols of GNU packages, for example for coreutils etc.?

Welcome to LQ.
Only a few Ubuntu packages are available with debug symbols :

Ubuntu >> Packages >> natty >> debug

'coreutils' is not included. Then : Google .. build debug debian ..

The first hit is

And the "DebianDebug Package Wiki"

Thanks for the answer!

But your answer itself is the source of my question. And the basic question is why Linux world makes some easy things so labour-intensive.

Let's try Google with "linux debugging symbols" and "windows debugging symbols". The difference is evident. Is there any sensible reason why Linux symbols are not available so simply?

All debug packages are available for all versions of Fedora.
Example 1
Example 2

It's a matter of time and money :
Creating the packages, uploading the packages, paying for the storage.

And very few people will ever have a demand for those packages.
