Install glibc-debug for glibc-2.11.3-17.31.1 on SLES 11
From which site and how can I download the corresponding glibc-debug and glibc source for glibc-2.11.3-17.31.1 for SLES 11?
Will glibc source from be useful for SLES 11?

Source, SLE11SP2 : The SRC.RPMS ..
> glibc-2.11.3-17.31.1.src.rpm

$ rpmbuild -bb glibc.spec : The following packages are created :
glibc glibc-locale glibc-obsolete glibc-devel glibc-info glibc-html
glibc-i18ndata nscd? glibc-profile .... But no "glibc-debug** ".

And : Why not ask Suse about your questions ?
( You are supposed to have a license / support for SLE 11.)

Thanks knudfl for the reply.
I got the source then I can build it and use it for symbols and so I guess there is not need of debuginfo.

I guess glibc source from can also be used for SLES 11 as glibc is not os flavour specific?

# 3.

There is a difference between the "gnu glibc" source and the SLE 11
source glibc-2.11.3-78856c5c73f74d.tar.bz2, "glibc-2.11.3-17.31.1" :
The 83 Suse patches ( files.diff, files.patch ).

I guess you will have to apply the patches, if you want a look-alike debug result.

personally i would enable the suse-debug.repo
and install it with zypper
or if used
the yast gui
