ppc64-utils is missing several manpages
Last modified: 2014-01-12 19:10:42 EST
Description of problem:
RPMDiff test Manpage integrity has indicated that several executables in the ppc64-utils package are missing man pages.
New executable /usr/sbin/drmgr added on ppc does not have a manpage
New executable /usr/sbin/lsdevinfo added on ppc does not have a manpage
New executable /usr/sbin/lsslot added on ppc does not have a manpage
5 executables still do not have manpages (on ppc):
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
GSS has indicated that man pages are important to customers and not having them can generate support calls. Please fix it.

Man page for addRamDisk command
Original (of addRamDisk.c) is from kernel source tree; arch/ppc64/boot/addRamDisk.c. I didn't find any man page, so I created this one pretty short informative one.

Man page for addSystemMap command
Original (of addSystemMap.c) is from kernel source tree;
arch/ppc64/boot/addSYstemMap.c. I didn't find any man page, so I created this one

These executables don't have man pages.

Those 5 do have.
So moving back to ASSIGNED to get the remaining 3 pan pages in.
The following executables don't have man pages:

lsslot man page

ls-vdev man page

drmgr man page
This one is very poor.
drmgr don't necessarily need a manpage as it is a command that is not
meant to be run by users.

ls-vdev man page (fixed)
Previous man page had some mistakes

All of those have man pages in ppc64-utils-0.13-5.el5. Manpage integrity test case in rpmdiff has passed.
I've found that /usr/bin/mkzimage doesn't have a man page although this was not detected by rpmdiff. Does it need one?
There can be some man page similar to addRamDisk one.
Moving back to ASSIGNED for the new man page to be added.

mkzimage man page
Fixed in ppc64-utils-0.13-6.el5
man page for mkzimage is present in ppc64-utils-0.13-6.el5.ppc.rpm and this package is included in the 1029.0 tree. Moving to VERIFIED.
