Description Jonathan Steinert 2007-02-28 14:16:22 EST
Description of problem:
man/info pages missing for system commands ifdown(8) and ifup(8). Also config
file documentation missing for /etc/sysconfig/network-scripts/ifcfg-*.

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

How reproducible:
Frustratingly consistent (100%)

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man ifdown; info ifdown
2. man ifup; info ifup
3. man network-scripts; man ifcfg; man sysconfig; info (repeat)
Actual results:
No pages

Expected results:
Documentation of syntax and options for system commands, plus references to the
manpages of related information (ie, manpages for the configfiles that drive it)

Additional info:
None at this time
Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 2007-02-28 14:32:57 EST
Documentation for init scripts is in

As for man pages, I've cloned this bug for our development tree; it is much more
likely to be fixed there for a future release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux than
to be specifically fixed in a RHEL 4 update.

Closing as WONTFIX for RHEL 4.
