Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 116100
kill(1) man page
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:36 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
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?
It turns out that redhat-lsb requires /usr/bin/kill but not /bin/kill.
So I think util-linux is in the wrong here.
Fixed in coreutils-5.2.0-4.
Oops, wrong bug (meant to close bug #116463).
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.
