Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 814723
grub2-reboot has no man page
Last modified: 2012-04-23 09:26:47 EDT
Description of problem:
grub2-reboot needs a man page
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. # man grub2-reboot
No manual entry for grub2-reboot
every userspace tool should have a man page.
there is no info page for grub2-reboot either and I found nothing in the grub2 info page.
Grub is dogmatic GNU project and do not use man pages, so I guess the main problem described here is WONTFIX.
Upstream is aware that their info documentation is out of date. This is thus in the same category as Bug 784547. --help is (mostly?) up to date.
(grub2-reboot do however rely on writing to grubenv from the boot loader. That do not work on all systems, and grub2-reboot is thus not usable as a general mechanism.)
OK, that explains why I could not get it to work. A bit frustrating that a full man page is WONTFIX but I can understand.
Closing bug for now.
