Comment 1 Ivana Varekova 2009-10-01 13:31:31 UTC
In the subpackages there is one more binary: 
which should be documented too.

Comment 2 Ludek Dolihal 2009-10-15 08:44:27 UTC
I found man page for dmraid:  http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/karmic/en/man8/dmraid.8.html 

But I am not sure if it is for dmraid.static as well. Check please.

Comment 3 Alasdair Kergon 2009-10-15 11:42:53 UTC
Static binaries/libraries will be disappearing - Fedora should no longer need them.  Yes, dmraid and dmraid.static do the same as each other.

Comment 4 Heinz Mauelshagen 2009-10-15 12:03:22 UTC
Fedora doesn't have any dmraid static ones since a while.

I'll close this because dmraid and dmraid.static provide the same functionality, hnece dmraid.8 man page applies.

Comment 5 Alasdair Kergon 2009-10-15 12:12:50 UTC
dmraid.static is still there - even if it's a link.
So is dm_dso_reg_tool.

Comment 6 Heinz Mauelshagen 2009-10-15 14:16:15 UTC

sure dmraid.static is still there as a link but no binaries/libs are static in Fedora. Same man page applies to dmraid.static as to dmraid. dm_dso_reg_tool/dmevent_tool come with a manpage of their own: dmevent_tool.8.

Comment 7 Alasdair Kergon 2009-10-15 14:27:43 UTC
But if I type 'man dmraid.static' it says 'No manual entry for dmraid.static'.  That is what this bug is talking about.  If there is an executable present on the system, then 'man <exectuable_name>' needs to bring up its man page.

But I'd suggest this part be resolved by removing the 'dmraid.static' symlink.

And dm_dso_reg_tool can perhaps be added(linked) to the existing dmevent_tool man page.

Fix in rawhide.

Comment 9 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 13:03:13 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.
