Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 97250
Client Configuration Guide has outdated reference to Lynx
Last modified: 2009-08-19 23:02:57 EDT
Description of problem:
The RHN Client Configuration Guide makes several references to the Lynx
application (the first of which is listed in URL). This application no longer
ships with current versions of RHL. The plan is to substitute recommendations
for using wget.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Log into WebQA with a Sat. or Proxy-entitled account.
2. Click Help.
3. Open the RHN Client Conmfiguration Guide.
4. Click the Importing Custom GPG Keys link
5. Examine the second command.
Get recommended Lynx.
Be recommended wget.
This has been fixed. The latest Client Config Guide can be found on the RHN
In addition to the references to lynx in the Importing Custom GPG Keys chapter
(4), I also replaced references with wget in chapters 5 and 6.
My only reservation is that chapter 5 Scripting used to suggest using lynx
--source with a bootstrap script, but no --source option exists for wget. I
included the -O option (--output-file) as the closest match. Needless to say,
this could use a sanity check.
The syntax here is the syntax that we worked out when we noticed the issue at
Nortel, so good on you.
Not in -47. Please make sure it gets into a build.
The files are checked into CVS for this. I'm changing status to ON_DEV in
preparation for build -48 at GDK's request.
Looks good in 48
Looks good in prod.
