Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 850832
The binutils package contains the windmc(1) manual page but the utility is not included
Last modified: 2014-10-14 00:40:24 EDT
Description of problem:
The binutils package contains the windmc(1) manual page, but the windmc utility is not included in the package. This is confusing, because if a utility is documented, people expect it to be present in the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Make sure the binutils package is installed:
# yum install binutils
2. Access the manual page for the windmc utility:
$ man windmc
3. Attempt to run the utility itself:
I can see the manual page, but the utility is clearly not there:
$ rpm -ql binutils | grep windmc
Either the /usr/share/man/man1/windmc.1.gz file should be removed, or the windmc utility should be added to the package.
