Description Tim Wilkinson 2009-09-10 18:23:19 UTC
Description of problem:

On both my KVM hypervisor system as well as on the guests, 

  "rhn_register -v" ignores the switch and starts the GUI. 

  "rhn_register --version" functions as expected.



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

rhn_register (Red Hat Network Client Tools) 0.4.20-9.el5



How reproducible:

Consistent.


Steps to Reproduce:
1. rhn_register -v
2. rhn_register --version

Comment 1 Milan Zázrivec 2009-10-12 13:21:32 UTC
Description above is in fact correct behavior.

According to program manual page as well as --help message, -v switch
is a short option for --verbose, not --version.
