Description Petr Muller 2008-04-08 12:09:59 EDT
Description of problem:
Information on some manual page are wrong, as it states two options, --console 
and --log, none of which actually works. It seems that 'utility -h' reports 
correct set of options and behavior, so man page should be probably aligned to 
this information.

affected utils: fauxv, fcore, fdebuginfo, fdebugrpm, fmaps, fstack

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man <affected frysk util>
Actual results:
Bogus options described in manual

Expected results:
Real options described in manual

This is fixed upstream: http://sourceware.org/frysk/manpages/ is more up-to-date.

Manual page of fdebugdump talks about fdebugrpm in its synopsis section.

Manual page of fauxv should contain a space after the utility name in its description section.

I'm sorry. Comment #3 is related to frysk-0.4-2.fc10.
