Description Michal Jaegermann 2005-10-17 17:10:38 EDT
Description of problem:

The current version of 'man pidof' from SysVinit-2.85-42 describes an option
'-c' - even if it was not there before and even if '.TH PIDOF 8 "01 Sep 1998"'
remains.  Sigh!  To make things more "interesting" '-c' is used in initscripts.
There is no mention of such option in /usr/share/man/pl/man8/pidof.8.gz.
No idea about other language specific versions.

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

Polish language is not supported by RH so here is not any person who could fix
this problem or review a proposed patch.
Comment 2 Marcin Garski 2005-10-20 17:35:31 EDT
I'm a person who knows Polish language :) and I could help if you want, with
this bug and in future.
Comment 3 Ivana Varekova 2006-01-06 09:36:54 EST
Marcin, please could you translate/update pidof man page, it would be
appreciate. Our new colleague check you translation now. 
Thank you.

OK, I will do that.

I have done little investigation and I know why pidof man page are out of sync.
SysVinit source rpm contain 'sysvinit-2.86-chroot.patch', that file add -c option.
So any man page outside this package is and probably will be outdated, because
upstream version don't have such option.

Conclusion :) all man-pages-* have pidof man page out of sync, unless someone
provide patch for Fedora Core.
Comment 5 Marcin Garski 2006-01-06 11:20:09 EST
Here you have patch for pidof.8 man page.

Ivana could you please change URL in spec file to:
the old one isn't working any more.
Also note that you can update man-pages-pl to newer version from updated URL :)
