Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 836438
Typo/Outdated kexec_load(2) man page
Last modified: 2012-09-25 02:21:51 EDT
Description of problem:
In the kexec_load(2) man page, a typo exists in the last paragraph:
"...can be set to inform the kernel that the memory memory image...".
The word memory should only appear once.
Also, the official documentation already included a (more precise) man
page for this syscall. According to the .spec, the current version of
this page is extracted from man-pages-additional-20101006.tar.bz2. Maybe
this page should be removed from the additional package.
Read the kexec_load(2) man page
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man kexec_load
