Ubuntu and Debian Systems

To install the required tools on Ubuntu and Debian systems, run the following commands as sudo or root:

apt-get install pstack
apt-get install mcelog
apt-get install sysstat

SuSE Systems

To install the required tools on SuSE systems, run the following commands as sudo or root.

zypper install sysstat

There is no individual SuSE package for pstack/gstack. However, the gdb package contains gstack, so you could optionally install gdb instead, or build pstack/gstack from source. To install the gdb package:

zypper install gdb
