src/dist/tcpdump/tcpdump.8 contains an error, a dead FTP link,
and the filename itself has an incorrect extension.
The error is corrected in the proposed patch below.
The dead link should either be removed, updated, or commented out;
in the proposed patch attached, the lines which are involved with
it have been commented out.
The filename's extension should be changed to `1', since
that's the case in the official package from tcpdump.org.
Also, it will correspond to the value specified by man(7)'s
`TH'-macro. (Ironically, this seems to be the opposite of what
was reported by PR #2766.)
Unsure, and not done in the proposed patch below:
should the date in man(7)'s `TH'-macro be changed as well?
(It currently says ``.TH TCPDUMP 1 "18 April 2005"''.)
The latest version of tcpdump (4.0.0), which is available at
http://www.tcpdump.org, still contains the first two issues
described above; please report these issues upstream as well.
"man 8 tcpdump"; "ls /usr/src/dist/tcpdump/tcpdump.8"
As well as the proposed patch below, the filename should be
renamed, and the file should at installation time be placed
into /usr/share/man/man1/ instead of /usr/share/man/man8/.
Apply proposed patch:
