Description Clay Murphy 2003-06-11 17:43:22 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):

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
Get recommended Lynx.

Expected results:
Be recommended wget.

Comment 1 Clay Murphy 2003-06-11 19:18:40 EDT
This has been fixed. The latest Client Config Guide can be found on the RHN
intranet page:

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.
Comment 3 Josef Komenda 2003-06-16 15:31:21 EDT
Not in -47. Please make sure it gets into a build.
Comment 4 Clay Murphy 2003-06-18 16:18:42 EDT
The files are checked into CVS for this. I'm changing status to ON_DEV in
preparation for build -48 at GDK's request.
Comment 5 Josef Komenda 2003-06-20 12:02:56 EDT
Looks good in 48
Comment 6 Josef Komenda 2003-07-07 16:54:14 EDT
Looks good in prod.
