View Full Version : Can't install apache2-dbg - unable to locate package

March 16th, 2014, 09:48 PM
I am trying to debug a coredump issue with Apache. I have been following a tutorial (http://sysadmin.carlusgg.com/?p=197) on using gbd to backtrace the problem. In the tutorial I need to install apache2-dbg using

apt-get install apache2-dbg

However, when I run that command I get the following output

justin@ubuntu:/etc/apt$ sudo apt-get install apache2-dbgReading package lists... Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information... Done
E: Unable to locate package apache2-dbg

Everywhere I have read says to use that same command to download the package. Is there some other command I can use? Or something else I need to do to make that command work?

Based on a package search at packages.ubuntu.com (http://packages.ubuntu.com/saucy/apache2-dbg) it appears that apache2-dbg is only available for 13.10 and later - it's not obvious what package (if any) provides the dbg binaries in earlier releases

Thanks for the reply. I was able to get the gdb program to work without this package by changing my permissions in my core dump file.
