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):
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.
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.
This is still the case for RHEL 4.2.
This is still the case for RHEL4.3
