Description Panu Matilainen 2003-02-26 16:27:16 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.7 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20030131

Description of problem:
"apm" utility talks both in manual page and in its usage message about -i
(ignore) option but it doesn't accept it anyway. Whether -i actually works seems
to be a compile time option.. perhaps it could be enabled (it might be useful
sometimes) or at least it shouldn't say it supports an option which it doesn't.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): all versions since
at least RH7.1 up to apmd-3.0.2-17 from rawhide.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. apm -h
2. apm -i


Actual Results:  [pmatilai@es-adsl-soho-30-186 pmatilai]$ apm -i
usage: apm [-vmMsSin] [--verbose] [--minutes] [--monitor] [--suspend] [--standby]

Expected Results:  Either the system should start ignoring APM events (if the
feature were turned on) or it shouldn't say -i is an accepted option.

Closing out bugs on older unsupported releases. Apologies for any lack
of response. Please reopen if it persists on current releases such as
Fedora Core 3.

This is probably not something we'll fix downstream.
