Description Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 14:13:54 EDT
Description of Problem: Something is not right with the rpc.yppasswdd.8
man-page.  If you run the command "man 8 rpc.yppasswdd 2> stderr", there's data
in the file "stderr".

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
# rpm -qf $(which rpc.yppasswdd)

How Reproducible: 100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man 8 rpc.yppasswdd 2> stderr

Actual Results: contents are as follows:
# cat stderr
/usr/share/groff/1.17.2/font/devlatin1/.:0: error: missing charset command

Expected Results: empty stderr output
Comment 1 Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 14:14:31 EDT
... same results checking "yppasswdd" man-page
Comment 2 Alexander Larsson 2002-04-15 14:30:52 EDT
I don't get this with ypserv-2.2-6, but it looks like the bug is actually in
some groff config file or something. Could you upgrade to The ypserv from
rawhide and see if you still get this.
Comment 3 Glen A. Foster 2002-04-15 16:07:33 EDT
Upgrading to rawhide version (ypserv-2.2-8) eliminates the problem.  Don't know 
about the "groff is the culprit" portion, though.
Comment 4 Alexander Larsson 2002-04-15 16:48:16 EDT
Then i'm closing this bug RAWHIDE. 

There will eventually (in a month or so) be an yp errata for older versions of
Red Hat to fix various deficiencies. So you can opt to wait for that too.
