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

Ubuntu >> Packages >> natty >> debug http://packages.ubuntu.com/natty/debug/

'coreutils' is not included. Then : Google .. build debug debian ..
http://www.google.dk/search?hl=da&so...e-s%C3%B8gning

The first hit is http://jameswestby.net/tips/tips/com...for-debug.html
( > http://blog.zugschlus.de/archives/41...endencies.html )

And the "DebianDebug Package Wiki" http://wiki.debian.org/DebugPackage

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.
http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/
Example 1 http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...ing/i386/debug
Example 2 http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pu...g/x86_64/debug

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.
