Neither did I... Anyway now we're not messing with kernels anymore, so we'll
probably have to close it when uploading! (tagging)

Ok, great! (tagging) I hadn't before because I was mostly using xen on sarge and
didn't try it in sid!

Doesn't seem the same... it gives the same warning, but then the real error for
which it doesn't start it:
ERROR: Could not obtain handle on privileged command interface (2 = No such
file or directory) (and then the traceback follows)

I don't know why he couldn't connect to the hypervisor... He didn't even reply
my message asking if he was really trying from inside a dom0! So it's probably a
bogus bug anyway!

Oh, good... As before I didn't say anything because I hadn't tried with that
version of binutils... (tagging)

No, the packages install the manpages, but there aren't man pages available for
all the software installed in /bin, /usr/bin, /sbin, /usr/sbin, that is:


Between these only xm, xentop and xentrace have a manpage. Either we write them
for all the others or we have, by policy, to leave the bug open! 

<Policy 12.1>

Each program, utility, and function should have an associated manual page
included in the same package. It is suggested that all configuration files also
have a manual page included as well. Manual pages for protocols and other
auxiliary things are optional.

If no manual page is available, this is considered as a bug and should be
reported to the Debian Bug Tracking System (the maintainer of the package is
allowed to write this bug report themselves, if they so desire). Do not close
the bug report until a proper man page is available.[71]

You may forward a complaint about a missing man page to the upstream authors,
and mark the bug as forwarded in the Debian bug tracking system. Even though the
GNU Project do not in general consider the lack of a man page to be a bug, we
do; if they tell you that they don't consider it a bug you should leave the bug
in our bug tracking system open anyway.
