I'm using SLES 11 SP2 x86_64 and I want to install kernel-default-debuginfo package. But, I couldn't find it anywhere on the Novel website. Where can I find the mentioned package?

This article would seem to explain what you're looking for, titled: HOWTO: install kernel debuginfo packages on SUSE Linux Enterprise Server 11.

excerpts from that article

1. Get a list of repos

lin4-ea6:~ # zypper repos
# | Alias                                                    | Name                                                   | Enabled | Refresh
--+----------------------------------------------------------+--------------------------------------------------------+---------+--------
1 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Server-11 11-0                     | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Server-11 11-0                   | Yes     | No     
2 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0   | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11 11-0 | Yes     | No     
3 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11_11-0_1 | SUSE-Linux-Enterprise-Software-Development-Kit-11 11-0 | Yes     | No     
4 | nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Pool                       | SLE11-Debuginfo-Pool                                   | No      | Yes    
5 | nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Updates                    | SLE11-Debuginfo-Updates                                | No      | Yes    
6 | nu_novell_com:SLES11-Extras                              | SLES11-Extras                                          | No      | Yes    
7 | nu_novell_com:SLES11-Pool                                | SLES11-Pool                                            | No      | Yes

2. Enable repos

You want the two Debuginfo repos. To enable them, use zypper modifyrepo with the alias of the repo:

lin4-ea6:~ # zypper modifyrepo --enable nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Pool
Repository 'nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Pool' has been sucessfully enabled.
lin4-ea6:~ # zypper modifyrepo --enable nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Updates
Repository 'nu_novell_com:SLE11-Debuginfo-Updates' has been sucessfully enabled

3. Search for your kernel's debuginfo

lin4-ea6:~ # zypper search -s kernel-*-debuginfo*

Thanks. But, I actually wanted to know where this package is available. I need the link/webpage/path of the repository. –  Mandar Shinde Jun 10 at 8:19
    
@MandarShinde - you could use zypper to download only: blog.christophersmart.com/2010/02/01/… –  slm Jun 10 at 12:47
