Description Leopold Aichinger 2013-09-13 13:14:33 UTC
Description of problem:
After installation of the package net-snmp-devel-5.5-44.el6_4.4.x86_64.rpm
the command:
$ man snmp_read
fails with:
Cannot open man page /usr/share/man/man3/snmp_api.3.gz
No manual entry for snmp_read

$ test -f /usr/share/man/man3/snmp_read.3.gz && echo "file exits"
file exits

$ zcat /usr/share/man/man3/snmp_read.3.gz
.so man3/snmp_api.3

$ test -f /usr/share/man/man3/snmp_api.3.gz && echo "file exits"

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. yum install net-snmp-devel
2. man snmp_read

Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:
no result from:
rpm -ql net-snmp-devel | grep snmp_api.3.gz
link/file snmp_api.3.gz is missing in the rpm-package net-snmp-devel
In my opinion there should be a softlink snmp_api.3.gz to netsnmp_session_api.3.gz, or the content of the snmp_read.3.gz should be corrected to snmp_session_api.3

Thanks for the report. You are correct, few man pages reference non-existing snmp_api.3. We'll fix it eventually, please go through Red Hat Support at access.redhat.com to speed things up.
