Description Grant Gainey 2006-12-01 17:54:56 EST
Description of problem:
In RHEL5, up2date no longer exists.  However, there are still man() pages that
discuss it, or refer users to it.  All of these references need to be either
removed, or redirected to yum.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
RHEL5 Beta 2

How reproducible:
Run man on a RHEL5b2 box

Steps to Reproduce:
$ man rhn_check
[go to bottom]

Actual results:
       man pages for up2date(8) and rhnsd(8).
rhel 5 server beta 2

Expected results:
       man pages for yum(8) and rhnsd(8).
rhel 5 server beta 2

Additional info:
I suspect there are still a number of places that reference up2date.  Somebody
needs to do a global search to find all the customer-facing ones, so we can at
least have a list of what needs to be fixed as we move forward.

There is no man page in man-pages package which point to up2date(8) man page.
rhn_check(8) man page is part of rhn-check package, so I'm reassigning this bug
to rhn-client-tools package.
Comment 2 James Bowes 2006-12-04 12:13:07 EST
All of the references to up2date(8) have already been removed in the newer man
pages, available in rhn-client-tools built post-beta 2. Note that there are
references to up2date(5), a new man page describing the config file format used
by rhn client-side programs.
