Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 63565
Unexpected stderr output from "man 8 rpc.yppasswdd" command
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:42:01 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
... same results checking "yppasswdd" man-page
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.
Upgrading to rawhide version (ypserv-2.2-8) eliminates the problem. Don't know
about the "groff is the culprit" portion, though.
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.
