Description Tim Waugh 2004-02-18 04:57:06 EST
Description of problem:
The kill(1) man page seems to be shipped by util-linux, but coreutils
provides the binary.

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

I suggest removing the man page from util-linux, and letting coreutils
provide it.
Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2004-02-18 05:01:33 EST
Actually it's a worse mess:

$ rpm -qf /usr/bin/kill
$ rpm -qf /bin/kill
$ type kill
kill is a shell builtin

Should coreutils not ship a kill binary?
Comment 2 Tim Waugh 2004-02-21 12:36:20 EST
It turns out that redhat-lsb requires /usr/bin/kill but not /bin/kill.
 So I think util-linux is in the wrong here.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2004-02-21 12:42:57 EST
Fixed in coreutils-5.2.0-4.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2004-02-21 12:44:33 EST
Oops, wrong bug (meant to close bug #116463).
Comment 5 Rob Hagopian 2004-03-04 11:06:33 EST
According to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard
(http://www.pathname.com/fhs/pub/fhs-2.3.html) kill is required to be
in /bin/kill. This would imply that the problem is with redhat-lsb?

FC2's util-linux has both paths available now.
