Severity: N/A

Details

An updated man-pages-overrides package that fixes various bugs is now available
for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.

The man-pages-overrides package contains a collection of manual (man) pages to
complement other packages or update those contained therein.

This update fixes the following bugs:

* Previously, the Japanese version of the rpm(8) manual page contained multiple
typos. This update corrects those typos. (BZ#510019)

* Previously, the manual page for the /usr/sbin/named_sdb binary was incorrectly
named named-sdb(8). This update changes the name of the manual page to the
correct named_sdb(8). (BZ#647113)

* Previously, the ethtool(8) manual page incorrectly referenced the "--blink"
option in SYNOPSIS. The option has been modified to the correct "--identify"
option. (BZ#678326)

* Previously, the dig(1) manual page did not document the exit codes of the dig
tool. With this update, the exit codes are now described on the manual page.
(BZ#703440)

* Previously, the lsvio(8) manual page did not document the "-D" and "-v"
options. With this update, the options are now described on the manual page.
(BZ#766784)

* Previously, multiple ecryptfs manual pages contained an incorrect link in the
SEE ALSO section. With this update, the link is fixed. (BZ#731938)

* Previously, the man-pages-overrides package incorrectly overrode the
mount.cifs(8) manual page from both the samba3x-client and samba-client
packages. With this update, only the mount.cifs(8) manual page from the
samba-client package is overridden. (BZ#769375)

* This update removes multiple manual pages from the original package.
(BZ#749319)

All users of man-pages-overrides are advised to upgrade to this updated package,
which fixes these bugs.
