Description borgia 1998-12-26 11:12:39 UTC
The symlink xforms.5 in the manpages dir is pointing to the
buildroot directory instead of being a relative link.
[version 0.88-5]
[already reported for PowerTools 5.0]

Comment 1 Jeff Johnson 1998-12-30 01:16:59 UTC
/usr/X11R6/man/man5/forms.5 is what needs correcting.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-01-18 22:12:59 UTC
*** Bug 864 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

The xforms-0.88-6 package contains the following symlink:

lrwxrwxrwx-     root     root         48 Oct 26 18:07
/usr/X11R6/man/man5/forms.5 ->
/var/tmp/xforms-root/usr/X11R6/man/man5/xforms.5

The destination path is invalid, and should be changed to a
relative path.

Comment 3 Preston Brown 1999-08-16 18:36:59 UTC
fixed in xforms-0.88-9, which will be available in the next release of
powertools.
