Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 8528
Typo in rpm man page
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:53 EDT
rpm --help vs. man rpm:
rpm --help output:
--nobuild - do not execute any stages
man rpm output:
--test Do not execute any build stages. Useful for test-
ing out spec files.
--test didn't work, probably --nobuild is correct.
Also the --help is more likely to be up-to-date.
In the man page:
The general form of an rpm build command is
rpm -[b|t]O [build-options] <package_spec>+
There should be a statement: where package_spec is a file
such as those found in /usr/src/redhat/SPECS/.
The rpm.8 man page has been rewritten in rpm-4.0.3, corrections above
should be in rpm-4.0.3-0.26 and later.
