Description Michael Meissner 2001-06-04 22:36:35 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3 i686; en-US; rv:0.9)

Description of problem:
There is no man pages for the general ati cards, other than the r128 page,
such as the Radeon driver.  This makes it difficult to edit the
configuration file to tweak specific machine dependent features.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Do man ati or man radeon.
2.Verify that no man page shows up.

I have notified driver maintainers, and will follow up on this every now 
and then.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2003-02-21 08:45:52 EST
radeon manpage exists now in RAWHIDE, but no ati page yet.
Comment 3 Mike A. Harris 2003-04-15 04:23:40 EDT
Realistically, there are always going to be higher priority bug reports
and feature enhancement requests in our bugzilla that end up causing this
lower priority request to never be addressed.  I think the best person
to implement an ati manpage would be the upstream ati driver maintainer or
ATI themselves.  It is probably best to file this bug in XFree86.org's
bugzilla at http://bugs.xfree86.org in order to have them track it upstream
and add it.

Comment 4 Mike A. Harris 2004-01-10 10:28:37 EST
XFree86 CVS head contains manpages for all 3 ATI subdrivers
(ati, r128, radeon) now, and 4.3.0 contains some of these as well,
so this bug can be closed out now.
