#39 Sys. Admin. Guide references non-existent man page.
Closed 2 years ago by pbokoc. Opened 2 years ago by bier.

In the Fedora-30 sys. admin guide,
In the "Viewing and Managing Log Files" unit,
in the "Basic Configuration of Rsyslog" section,
at the end of the "log rotation" sub-section (line 726?),
it says:
"For the full list of directives and various configuration options, see the logrotate(5) manual page.".
There is no such man page. The closest thing I could find was "logrotate.8".

The bottom of the unit, line 2116, "Installed Documentation", has a similar problem. The third entry references a man page that does not exist. I think it should reference the man page for "logrotate(8)".

Please correct this in sys. admin. guides for releases 30 and later, if not already done.


The first reference to logrotate(5) has been changed to logrotate(8) in both F30 and F31 sysadmin guides.

The second incidence seems to have been fixed already, and all of the referenced man pages exist, so I left those alone.

Thank-you! I'm fine with this being closed.
