debug kernel module with gdb - how to solve "no debugging symbols founds"

Hello, I am using Ubuntu 12.10. I am trying to debug a kernel module using gdb. I follow instructions on the Internet: compile kernel with CONFIG_DEBUG_INFO enabled, run gdb and try to "add-symbol-file" the module; but it fails with error: "no debugging symbol found". Can anybody who has experience with gdb give me a hint how to fix this?
