Description Bertil Askelid 1999-07-27 23:48:49 UTC
/usr/info/egcs.info.gz is no longer delivered with the rpm on the RedHat 6.0 CD
Comment 1 Jim Kingdon 1999-07-30 20:38:59 UTC
The info file is there but it is called gcc.info.gz. There is a real bug, however, namely that the /usr/info/dir file points to "egcs" rather than "gcc".
Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-08-31 16:51:59 UTC
The entry in /usr/info/dir is generated by running install-info in the egcs %post so the is an egcs packaging problem. Check the generated gcc.info.gz file for incorrect entry or whack the text into the install-info args.
Comment 3 Jim Kingdon 1999-08-31 19:22:59 UTC
OK, after some investigation, we have found that the bad line in /usr/info/dir ("egcs:(egcs)") can occur on systems which have been upgraded from a pre-6.0 release to 6.0. If you install 6.0 afresh, the /usr/info/dir line will read ("gcc: (gcc)") which is correct. If your system is affected, it should be possible to work around the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling the egcs package (but I didn't verify this workaround).
