Description Michael Redinger 2003-08-16 10:00:26 EDT
The info file /usr/share/info/annotate.info.gz does not contain a
INFO-DIR-SECTION. When updating to the latest version, I got the following error:

install-info: warning: no info dir entry in `/usr/share/info/annotate.info.gz'

(Hm, somehow this must have screwed up the %post scriptlet execution. I ended up
with both the old and the new gdb installed: gdb-5.3.90-0.20030710.13 and
gdb-5.3.90-0.20030710.14 . However, looking at the %post section in the spec
file, I cannot see how this should have happened; I also did not get any message
that the scriptlet exit status was different from 0.)

I added a patch for this to a new rpm. gdb/doc/annotate.texinfo was missing the
This should be fixed in gdb-5.3.90-0.20030710.17.
