           Summary: netkit-base installs ping manpage in Sec. 8, but it
                    should be in Sec. 1
           Product: Linux From Scratch
           Version: CVS
          Platform: All
        OS/Version: Linux
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: minor
          Priority: P3
         Component: Book
        AssignedTo: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
        ReportedBy: uli at math.auc.dk
         QAContact: lfs-book at linuxfromscratch.org
                CC: uli at math.auc.dk


ping is installed as /bin/ping, but the manpage as /usr/man/man8/ping.8

As ping (per installation) is a user program, the manpage should be in
/usr/man/man1/ping.1

(Sidenote: Solaris has ping in /usr/sbin/ping, but the manpage in Sec. 1. What a
mess.)
