Description Enrico Scholz 2002-01-18 21:00:52 EST
Description of Problem:

Although the contained smart-utilities (smartctl & smartd) are having man-pages
in their tar-ball, they are not included in the final rpm-package:

| $ rpm -ql kernel-utils
| /etc/rc.d/init.d/microcode_ctl
| /etc/rc.d/init.d/smartd
| /sbin/microcode_ctl
| /usr/sbin/dmidecode
| /usr/sbin/smartctl
| /usr/sbin/smartd
| /usr/share/man/man8/microcode_ctl.8.gz

This seems to be caused by installing into /usr/man instead of /usr/share/man:

| Executing(%install): /bin/sh -e /var/tmp/rpm-tmp.55953
| ...
| install -m 644 smartd.8 /var/tmp/kernel-utils-2.4-root/usr/man/man8
