Description Jaromir Hradilek 2012-08-22 09:52:50 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):

How reproducible:

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:

   $ windmc
Actual results:
I can see the manual page, but the utility is clearly not there:

   $ rpm -ql binutils | grep windmc

Expected results:
Either the /usr/share/man/man1/windmc.1.gz file should be removed, or the windmc utility should be added to the package.
Comment 5 RHEL Product and Program Management 2013-10-13 20:30:38 EDT
This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for
inclusion in the current release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Because the affected component is not scheduled to be updated
in the current release, Red Hat is unable to address this
request at this time.

Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate, in the next release of
Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
