Summary: Broken manpages in apache2 package
Classification: openSUSE
Product: openSUSE 13.1
Version: Final
Platform: x86-64
OS/Version: Other
Status: NEW
Severity: Normal
Priority: P5 - None
Component: Apache
AssignedTo: bnc-team-apache@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
ReportedBy: ncutler@xxxxxxxx
QAContact: qa-bugs@xxxxxxx
Found By: Field Engineer
Blocker: ---


As for manpage functionality, I think it is seriously broken. Consider
this, for example (with apache2 version 2.4.6-6.19.2):

# httpd
If 'httpd' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the
package that contains it, like this:
cnf httpd
# man httpd
.. read all about the httpd command that I can't run, no mention of httpd2 ...
# apachectl
If 'apachectl' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup
the package that contains it, like this:
cnf apachectl
# man apachectl
.. read all about the apachectl command that I can't run, no mention
of apache2ctl ...
# man apachectl2
.. another way of displaying the apachectl manpage, but still no
mention of apache2ctl...
# apachectl2
If 'apachectl2' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup
the package that contains it, like this:
cnf apachectl2
# man apache2ctl
No manual entry for apache2ctl
# man apxs
.. read manpage ...
# apxs
If 'apxs' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the
package that contains it, like this:
cnf apxs
# man apxs2
.. read apxs manpage ...
# apxs2
If 'apxs2' is not a typo you can use command-not-found to lookup the
package that contains it, like this:
cnf apxs2

The manpages appear to be taken verbatim from upstream, with no
mention of the openSUSE-specific name change. Also, there is a manpage
for apachectl2, a command which doesn't exist, but none for
apache2ctl, which does. And then there is a manpage for apxs which is
not included in the package at all (under any name).
