No kernel debug image meta packages

Bug #92553 reported by Pär Lindfors on 2007-03-15
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux-meta (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

In addition to the existing meta packages for
linux-image-[generic/server] and linux-headers-[generic/server] I
think there should also be packages for
linux-image-debug-[generic/server] that depend on the latest debug
image packages.

Without this the debug image package have to be installed manually
every time the kernel is upgraded.

The attached patch for linux-meta in gutsy adds linux-image-debug meta packages for generic, 386, ume and server as these are the architectures that have linux-image-debug packages available according to

I know it is not entirely correct to add ubuntu-main-sponsors to this. However, the package is in main, and kernel team have completely ignored this for four months now. (I have submitted this bug, sent e-mail to their list, made a patch and sent that to the list etc.)

I also know that they probably simply have to much work to do, so this way maybe some other in main sponsors have time to look at this. The bug is trivial and easy to fix, but very annoying to those who actually use the kernel debug packages.
