Description Jacco Logtenberg 2005-01-28 15:33:27 EST
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0 Description of problem: The manpage of the telnet-command shows a lot of garbage. Telnet itself does work fine. I tried different telnet emulators (ssh, telnet, ivt, putty) -> no difference. [jacco@riker ~]$ echo $TERM vt100 [jacco@riker ~]$ man telnet . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .TH TELNET 1 .SH NAME telnet ï¿½ user interface to the TELNET protocol .SH SYNOPSIS .B telnet [ï¿½8] [ï¿½E] [ï¿½F] [ï¿½K] [ï¿½L] [ï¿½S tos] [ï¿½X authtype] [ï¿½a] [ï¿½c] [ï¿½d] [ï¿½e escapechar] [ï¿½f] [ï¿½k realm] [ï¿½l user] [ï¿½n tracefile] [ï¿½r] [ï¿½x] [host [port]] The command is used to communicate with another host using the protocol. If is invoked without the argu- ment, it enters command mode, indicated by its prompt ( In this mode, it accepts and executes the commands listed below. If it is invoked with arguments, it performs an command with those arguments. Specify an 8-bit data path. This causes an attempt to nego- tiate the option on both input and output. Stop any character from being recognized as an escape character. ï¿½F forward a copy of the local credentials to the remote system. ï¿½K Specify no automatic login to the remote system. Specify an 8-bit data path on output. This causes the BINARY option to be negotiated on output. ï¿½S tos Set the IP type-of-service (TOS) option for the telnet Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): telnet-0.17-30 How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. type 'man telnet' 2. 3. Expected Results: A correct formatted manpage Additional info: A few other FC3-users (I asked them) have the same problem. In Redhat 9.0 the problem doesn't show.

$ man -aw telnet /usr/kerberos/man/man1/telnet.1.gz /usr/share/man/man1/telnet.1.gz This is the kerberos telnet manpage... it has tabs at the beginning of some lines..
