Description Landon Curt Noll 2004-03-08 03:52:33 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030624

Description of problem:
The xinetd.log(5) man page shows up in section 8 instead of section 5.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man 5 xinetd.log
2.man 8 xinetd.log

Actual Results:  The 1st man command does says "No entry for
xinetd.log in section 5 of the manual".  The 2nd man page prints the
xinetd.log(5) man page even though it is a section 5 man page.

Expected Results:  The "man 5 xinetd.log" command should work.  The
"man 8 xinetd.log"
command should fail.

Additional info:

The RPM installs the man page in /usr/share/man/man8/xinetd.log.8.gz
instead of /usr/share/man/man8/xinetd.log.5.gz.
