Bug Description

According to this website: http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/focal/man8/rxe_cfg.8.html
rxe_cfg should be provided with rdma-core package but it is not.

I have already reinstalled the package twice. dpkg -L explicitly says the package provides e.g. manpages for the rxe module but rxe_cfg is not present on the list and it is not present in the system.

Description: Ubuntu 20.04 LTS
Release: 20.04

rdma-core:
  Installed: 28.0-1ubuntu1
  Candidate: 28.0-1ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 28.0-1ubuntu1 500
        500 http://pl.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu focal/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

You're right.. it is funny because that man page exists for eoan. Focal should not have that man page (and it does not when checking existing source packages). Somehow the man page was copied in "manpages.ubuntu.com" 20.04 session).

Bionic

rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man5/iwpmd.conf.5.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man7/rxe.7.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/iwpmd.8.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/rdma-ndd.8.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/rxe_cfg.8.gz

Eoan

rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man5/iwpmd.conf.5.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man7/rxe.7.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/iwpmd.8.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/rdma-ndd.8.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/rxe_cfg.8.gz

Focal

rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man5/iwpmd.conf.5.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man7/rxe.7.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/iwpmd.8.gz
rdma-core: /usr/share/man/man8/rdma-ndd.8.gz

Nevertheless, you're probably looking for:

/usr/share/doc/rdma-core/rxe.md

now: it shows that you should use "rdma" command in order to configure a soft-roce (RXE) device:

iproute2: /usr/bin/rdma

And the "rdma" command comes with iproute2 package.

I'm moving this bug to Ubuntu project.

Changed in rdma-core (Ubuntu):
status: New → Invalid
Changed in ubuntu-manpage-repository:
status: New → Triaged
importance: Undecided → Medium
