Doc Type: Bug Fix
Doc Text:
Cause: Previously the memtest-setup command didn't support the --help parameter. Consequence: This parameter was mentioned in the manual page, but unrecognized by the memtest-setup command which may confuse users and lower user experience. Fix: The memtest-setup command was fixed to support the --help parameter. Result: Now the memtest-setup supports the --help command and is consitent with the manual page.

Description Karel Volný 2016-01-26 08:56:00 EST
Description of problem:
Trying to get help from memtest-setup, it rather seems to try to perform the installation than to return just the help message.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. memtest-setup --help

Actual results:

Expected results:
memtest-setup installs Memtest86+ into your GRUB boot loader menu.

Usage: memtest-setup [options]
