Description Eduardo M. Fleury 2006-12-12 12:00:27 EST
---Problem Description---
pciconfig_read.2 manpage has two points where it's inaccurate or incomplete.

1) It mixes the terms "pciconfig_iobase" and "pci_iobase". The latter term
should be substituted by the first one.
This occours at lines 67, 73, 79 and 85.

2) The manpage instructs that the "pci.h" header should be included in order to
allow the use of the function signatures described (ie. int
pciconfig_iobase(...)) and the values defined (ie. IOBASE_BRIDGE_NUMBER, etc).
However, such header was not available in the system tested, even after the
instalation of the pciconfig-dev package.

Is that information outdated or are there any other steps I need to perform in
order to have this header? In either case the manpage should reflect that.

Removing automation notification
Comment 2 Don Domingo 2008-01-20 21:08:07 EST
ECS cannot process man page bugs. these have to be filed against their
respective tools (i.e. component). 

reassigning to pciutils, which i suspect owns this. hope this works.

This isn't part of pciutils.
