would you mind marking this page as (Fedora) ?

If you are looking for Debian's version of this, see update-alternatives package.

Yup, you are correct. I finally got around to reading the man page...and I should know better. Working just fine now.

@JKMooney Did you configure it before? It's not automatic, check its manual.

Trying to use this to switch between two java versions installed on my system (11 and 17). However, the command "sudo alternatives --config java" returns no output at all.

I don't see any reference to pod2man and I can use just fine without it. Am I missing something?

pod2man is required. please add that to the dependency
