Description Vince Skahan 2004-06-03 19:31:20 EDT
Description of problem:

ls --format=single-column does not work

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

FC2 latest

How reproducible:

always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. cd /bin
2. do a "ls -1" (it works, you get a single-column output)
3. do a "ls --format=single-column (fails, you get multi-column 
output)
  
Actual results:

the --format option to 'ls' appears to not function

Expected results:

it should work as documented in the man page (rh9's version worked ok)

Additional info:

workaround is to use "ls -1" to get single column output until the 
bug is fixed.  I didn't check the other "--format" possibilities to 
see if they're all broken in FC2.
