Description Jan Iven 2008-10-16 05:36:51 EDT
Description of problem:

the man page for the "intel" X11 driver in RHEL5 is self-referencing:

$ zcat /usr/share/man/man4/intel.4.gz
.so man4/intel.4

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


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 4 intel

Actual results:


Expected results:

(man page with driver options and supported hardware types etc)

Additional info:
perhaps the page wants to redirect to the "i810" driver man page, but since "i810" and "intel" actually are two different drivers (shared libs), I would guess they support different hardware - but cannot tell.
