Description Peter Lowe 2010-11-16 10:22:17 EST
Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man syslinux
Actual results:

Syslinux man page is displayed.

Expected results:

"No manual entry for syslinux" is displayed.

Additional info:

[staging1:root]:~/remote # man -k syslinux
syslinux (rpm) - Simple kernel loader which boots from a FAT filesystem

[staging1:root]:~ # man -S rpm syslinux
No manual entry for syslinux

Also at least the "extlinux" command doesn't seem to even be in the whatis db:

[staging1:root]:~/remote # ls -l /sbin/extlinux
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 25K Jan 8 2007 /sbin/extlinux

[staging1:root]:~/remote # man -k extlinux
extlinux: nothing appropriate

Despite it being part of the syslinux package.

On a fresh 5.9 installation, I am able read both the syslinux and extlinux man pages.
