Description dh_redhat 2000-10-22 20:23:12 UTC
Type 'man zshall', it will start with the following errors:

<standard input>:23: realpath on `man1/zshmisc.1' failed: No such file or 
directory
<standard input>:24: realpath on `man1/zshexpn.1' failed: No such file or 
directory
<standard input>:25: realpath on `man1/zshbuiltins.1' failed: No such file 
or directory
<standard input>:26: realpath on `man1/zshcompctl.1' failed: No such file 
or directory
<standard input>:27: realpath on `man1/zshparam.1' failed: No such file or 
directory
<standard input>:28: realpath on `man1/zshzle.1' failed: No such file or 
directory
<standard input>:29: realpath on `man1/zshoptions.1' failed: No such file 
or directory


Workaround:

su root
cd /usr/share/man/man1
gunzip zsh*
cd /var/cache/man/man1
rm zsh*
cd /
man zshall
exit

The problem is that zshall is a meta man page and it can't follow the 
links to the .gz sections like zshmisc, zshbuiltins, etc.

Comment 1 dh_redhat 2000-10-22 20:25:08 UTC
The version of zsh is zsh-3.0.8-3


Comment 2 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-10-22 20:42:57 UTC
Bero, man broke again.

Comment 3 dh_redhat 2000-10-23 04:25:27 UTC
I suspect there are other man pages that suffer of the same problem, e.g. links 
in them that cannot be resolved because all the man pages are gzipped.

Comment 5 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2001-03-28 21:09:26 UTC
OK, I just changed the summary. Bero, this affects quite a few packages...
including "man-pages", "pvm", "zsh" - and these are just the ones I've seen the
problem in. Could you fix this ASAP? TIA.

Comment 7 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2001-04-25 08:54:00 UTC
I think the right fix is to make groff 
handle inclusions of gzipped stuff...

wow, i cannot believe this, i reported this bug almost 2 years ago and it is 
still not fixed, new bugs are still being marked as a dup of this one ... 
wasn't open source supposed to address all problems quickly?

Took quite some time, but now the current rpm handels this.
