  that's what i mean but i have in fact installed the
linux-image-2.6.32-22-generic package and it doesn't contain the
vmlinux file.

  someone else pointed me at the page
http://ddebs.ubuntu.com/pool/main/l/linux/ where i can see
linux-image-debug packages but that page looks annoyingly unmaintained
as there is no package corresponding to the current kernel of

  at this point, i am assuming that there is no official package that
will give me a vmlinux file corresponding to the running kernel.
frankly, that sucks.
