SystemTap on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5
SystemTap can be installed on a RHEL 5 system that has a connection to RHN with the following commands:
yum install systemtap kernel-devel yum --enablerepo=rhel-debuginfo install kernel-debuginfo
The -devel and -debuginfo RPMs must match the running kernel exactly, so you may need to specify the version strings to yum. The stap-prep script can help determine the exact versions needed.
To verify that the installed version of SystemTap is working run the following commands as root:
yum install systemtap-testsuite cd /usr/share/systemtap/testsuite make installcheck
