Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 467186
xorg-x11-drv-i810 "intel" man page is broken
Last modified: 2010-03-14 17:28:43 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
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 4 intel
(man page with driver options and supported hardware types etc)
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.
