Description Rahul Sundaram 2005-06-13 09:26:53 UTC
Description of problem:

man up2date does not provide any descriptions or hints on the presence of
rhn_register and rhn_check commands

Expected results:

a short description of rhn_register and rhn_check commands in up2date manual
pages and vice versa would be helpful for new users

Comment 1 Bret McMillan 2006-03-19 19:10:14 UTC
The "See Also" section of the up2date man page should reference rhn_check and rhnsd.

rhn_register is effectively an alias to 'up2date --register'.  It has no man page.
