Red Hat Product Errata RHBA-2007:1072 normal SHIPPED_LIVE checkpolicy bug fix update 2007-12-05 13:59:14 UTC

Description Linda Knippers 2007-04-11 15:56:00 UTC
Description of problem:
The manpage for checkmodule describes a -d (debug) option that is
not actually implemented.  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:
checkmodule -d gives a usage message

Expected results:
Should either work or not be in the manpage.  

Additional info:
The -d option on checkpolicy does work.  It looks like checkmodule
was intended to do the same at some point (getopt arguments include
a -d option) but was never implemented or was removed.
