Description Jay Sekora 1999-11-20 04:51:04 UTC
(Most of these are not in the man-pages RPM, but I didn't want to submit
lots of separate bug reports.)

* The man page for statd(8) is slightly wrong (it refers to
  /usr/sbin/rpc.lockd and /usr/sbin/rpc.statd, but those binaries are in
  /sbin), and there's no man page for lockd(8).

* The EXMH documentation is divided into multiple man pages, including
  exmh(1), exmh-use(1), exmh-ref(1), and exmh-custom(1). Only the man
  page for exmh(1) is included in the RedHat 6.1 EXMH rpm (exmh-2.0.3-2);
  the others are missing. (That was the case under RedHat 5.2 also.)

* The command `man -k clock' includes in its output
    clock (8)            - query and set the hardware clock (RTC)
  and setclock(8) also refers to clock(8), but `man 8 clock' says `No
  entry for clock in section 8 of the manual', and sure enough, there's
  no clock.8 under /usr/man.

* There are no man pages for rhosts(5) or hosts.equiv(5).

Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-30 16:24:59 UTC
I've fixed timeconfig (bad clock(8) references)

Exmh doesn't include those files

I'm binding it to a different component, as stad is part of nfs-utils

PS: Please submit multiple bugs instead of one big report. TIA.

Comment 3 Pekka Savola 2000-07-16 16:38:37 UTC
rhosts and rhosts.equiv man pages don't exist in Linux distribution of those tools.

rexec(1) man page is missing from the RPM though.  There are two reasons; rexec
patch for 0.10 uses $MANDIR in a different sense than expected, and SPEC file
has a missing entry.  Patched attached.

lockd man page is there in nfs-utils-0.1.8-2.  statd and lockd point to wrong
places.  Patch attached.

Comment 8 Alan Cox 2002-12-14 01:35:32 UTC
rexec man page still missing as is man 5 rhosts

Others seem ok

Comment 9 Phil Knirsch 2003-05-06 10:14:02 UTC
Erh, can't find the rhosts(5) manpage anywhere at all... Rest of the manpages
are there though, so closing the bug.

Read ya, Phil
