Description Cristian Ciupitu 2014-07-20 13:30:28 UTC
Description of problem:
The sd_booted(3) man page is missing.

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

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1a. man 3 sd_booted
1b. man 3 sd_notify

Actual results:

Expected results:
A man page.

Additional info:
The pages are referenced by systemd.index(7):

       sd_booted(3) -- Test whether the system is running the
       systemd init system
       sd_notify(3) -- Notify service manager about start-up
       completion and other daemon status changes

They are also referenced by systemd-notify(1):

       This is mostly just a wrapper around sd_notify() and makes
       this functionality available to shell scripts. For details
       see sd_notify(3).
           Returns 0 if the system was booted up with systemd,
           non-zero otherwise. If this option is passed, no message
           is sent. This option is hence unrelated to the other
           options. For details about the semantics of this option,
           see sd_booted(3).

Comment 1 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2014-07-20 13:55:33 UTC
They are part of the systemd-devel package. It *is* a bit awkward, but there's generally no way to ensure that man pages from other packages are installed.

Comment 2 Cristian Ciupitu 2014-07-20 14:15:47 UTC
Sorry for the false alarm then. It didn't cross my mind to check if
another package provides them.

Comment 3 Zbigniew Jędrzejewski-Szmek 2014-07-20 14:41:21 UTC
Pages from section 3 are mostly from -devel packages.
