Description tim.landscheidt 1999-07-28 00:42:20 UTC
With LANG=de_DE, "chkconfig" gives:

| chkconfig version 1.0.6 - Copyright (C) 1997 Red Hat
| Kostenlose Weitergabe unter den Bedingungen der GNU Public
License erlaubt.

| Verwendung:   chkconfig --list [Name]
|          chkconfig --add <Name>
|          chkconfig --del <Name>
|          chkconfig [--level <Ebenen>] <Name>

That's quite false as chkconfig expects "on" and "off"
instead of "Ein" and "Aus" and even distinguishes between
"reset" and "Reset". The (English only) man page is - of
course - correct.

Solution: Change the last line to "<on|off|reset>". Most
Germans will still get it.

Comment 1 tim.landscheidt 1999-07-28 00:45:59 UTC
Oh, and it would be nice if chkconfig honored "--help" and "--version"
(does not relate to this bug).

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-02 16:00:59 UTC
Fixed in chkconfig-1.0.6-2. Thanks for the report.
