Description Markus Armbruster 2017-02-07 11:08:51 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1419897 +++

Description of problem:
qemu-info.html section "3.5.1 Commands" documents __com.redhat_screendump instead of __com.redhat_qxl_screendump

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. View usr/share/doc/qemu-kvm-
2. Search for _screendump

Actual results:
Search finds
‘__com.redhat_screendump id filename’

    Save screen from qxl device id into PPM image filename. 

Expected results:
Should instead find
‘__com.redhat_qxl_screendump id filename’

    Save screen from qxl device id into PPM image filename. 

Additional info:
The typo is in qemu-monitor.hx.

Comment 1 Markus Armbruster 2017-02-07 11:09:59 UTC
The typo has moved from qemu-monitor.hx to in hmp-commands.hx.

Comment 3 Markus Armbruster 2017-02-07 14:54:28 UTC
Another doc bug:


    Create a drive similar to -device if=none. 

This should be "similar to -drive if=none".

Comment 4 Miroslav Rezanina 2017-02-10 12:20:56 UTC
Fix included in qemu-kvm-1.5.3-131.el7
