Description Brian Brock 2004-08-12 11:46:44 EDT

The up2date(8) man page contains a grammatical error, and a formatting

      requested. It also needs read/write access to the up2date
systemid file
       in /etc/sysconfig/rhn/systemid , and it’s configuration in

drop the apostrophe in "it's", that form of the word is only used for
the contraction of "it is".

Also, check the format of the page... When rendered on my system, the
right margin grows throughout the entire man page... indenting at the
same time as the left margin but never returning to the previous size.
 As a result, the text occupies only the left half of the display at
the bottom.

contents of /etc/sysconfig/i18n:

also, I see the following in my user's environment:
