4.103. man-pages

An updated man-pages package that fixes several bugs and adds various enhancements is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The man-pages package provides man (manual) pages from the Linux Documentation Project (LDP).

Bug Fixes

BZ#699701
The host.conf(5) man page contained information about the "order" keyword, which is no longer used by the GNU C library, glibc, to determine the order in which host lookups are performed. The lookup order is now taken from /etc/nsswitch.conf. The unsupported keyword "order" has been removed from the host.conf man page.
BZ#698691
Previously, the rt_sigprocmask(2) manual page contained an erroneous description of the "oset" parameter. This update corrects this description.
BZ#640299
Previously, the db(3) manual page was pointing to the non-existent dbopen(3) manual page. An error message, "fopen: No such file or directory", was displayed when the command "man db" was issued. With this update, the db(3) manual page is removed.
BZ#751877
Previously, the tzset(3) manual page contained an incorrect interval in the description of the start and end format for Daylight Saving Time. Consequently users thought the number was 1-based rather than 0-based when not using the "J" option. With this update the manual page has been corrected. The Julian day can be specified with an interval of 0 to 365 and February 29 is counted in leap years when the "J" option is not used.

Enhancements

BZ#650985
An update in the close(2) man page explains the interaction between system calls close() and recv() in different threads.
BZ#741713
The bootparam(7) man page is updated to the newer version.
All users are advised to upgrade to this updated man-pages package, which fixes these bugs and adds these enhancements.
