Description of problem:
Software on LSB based Operating Systems should, according to the FHS, install
itself under /usr/share/doc.
Unlike all other software on Red Hat Linux, the kernel documentation installs
into its own location. It should be possible to install it into the standard
location and thus allow customers can find it where they expect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install any other piece of software on Linux
2.Install the kernel
3.Find the documentation
Actual Results: The kernel documentation is installed into a non standard location
Expected Results: The kernel documentation should be located under
/usr/share/doc/(package)-(version). If the kernel looks in the non standard
location for its documentation post-install, it should be patched accordingly.
Arjan, is this possible?
[root@jackhammer noarch]# rpm -qlp
kernel-doc-2.6.8-1.569.root.noarch.rpm | head
how is this placed in the wrong location???
Pardon, I'd been looking at kernel-source (which puts it in a
different location, but for an understandable reason) all this time.
