Description Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-10-16 15:49:38 EDT
Description of Problem:

The documented "-o" option isn't working.

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


How Reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce: 
1. Run "/usr/games/fortune -o"

Actual Results:

/usr/share/games/fortune/off: No such file or directory

Expected Results:

A good, non-PC fortune.

Additional Information:

The "-o" option is listed in the "--help" output and in the manpage.
Comment 1 Mike A. Harris 2001-10-21 17:38:35 EDT
Offensive fortunes were removed at some point a long time ago.  The
-o option should probably be de-documented to coincide with the
lack of offensive fortunes.
Comment 2 Mike A. Harris 2002-08-22 04:14:20 EDT
fortune-mod-1.0-24 now has the -o option removed from the app, the help
screen, and the manpage
