Man page error: options --nopgp and --nogpg not supported
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:38:04 EDT
Description of problem:
The man page describes the command line options --nopgp and --nogpg for rpm --
checksig. If used, rpm fails with "--nopgp: unknown option"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
rpm --checksig --nopgp <Package File>
rpm --checksig --noggp <Package File>
Actual Results: --nopgp: unknown option
--noggp: unknown option
Expected Results: Man page should not list the options or the option should
Same issue was already reported as Bug #65494 in Rawhide but the bug report was
closed without fixing either documentation or executable.
The documentation will be fixed in rpm-4.2.
Meanwhile, the options --nogpg and --nopgp
have been replace by --nosignature.
I don't know if this is the right place to point this out, but the documentation
in the errata for 8.0 in our webpages should be amended. they still contain the
--nogpg option to test the rpms.
Probably, but this ain't the place to get that fixed.
