Description Moritz Barsnick 2003-03-03 08:29:06 UTC
Description of problem:

In mkinitrd's man page, there is a slight syntax error in the roff source. 
Therefore, a certain region gets rendered inappropriately in terms of emphasis.

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


How reproducible:


Steps to Reproduce:

1. man mkinitrd

2. Look for the description of the "--nopivot" argument.



Actual results:

bold all over (until the end of the "pivot_root" word)

Expected results:

only "--nopivot" should be bold

Additional info:

IMHO, the section should begin with the tag ".TP", as all others do. Just 
guessing.  :-)

Thanks for listening,

sorry, the crappy linebreaks in the bug report come from Opera7 under Win 
(perhaps BugZilla should parse the form input of the non-Javascript bug entry 
form differently? dunno),
