Description of problem:
Many grep 'info' files (at a minimum 'grep.info-1.gz') are missing from the
grep-2.5.1-1 .rpm distribution. Effectively, there are no 'info' files for
grep on RH 7.3.
They are present in grep-2.5.1-7, but this cannot be installed on RH 7.3
because of dependencies with a later version of GLIBC.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run the following command at the shell prompt: info grep
2. This fails because the top-level grep 'info' file cannot find
files that it references.
Actual Results: Instead, the manual page for grep is displayed.
Expected Results: The top-level info page for grep should be displayed.
This was fixed in Red Hat Linux 8.0 (the release before last).
OK. Thanks. I retrieved grep-2.5.1-4 from Red Hat Network. It installs and
resolves the problem. Previously, RHN had only indicated grep-2.5.1-1 (RH 7.3)
and grep-2.5.1-7 (RH 9) as being available. When I looked explicitly for the
grep RPM in the RH 8 release, I was able to find it.
