Description dh_redhat 2000-05-05 15:58:11 UTC
> The man pages for zsh (zsh-3.0.7-4) are not generated right. In
particular
> /usr/man/man1/zshall.1.gz should have links inside to other man pages
like
> zshbuiltins, ... zshzle. zshall is a master man page for all the
sections.
> Because the files are gzipped, catman is looking for zshmisc.1 instead of
> zshmisc.1.gz, so it won't find it, so the man page zshall will be
incomplete
> which is really inconvenient. It's been like this for the past few
release
> of RedHat, I am surprised nobody noticed.
>
> Workaround:
>
> su root
> cd /usr/man/man1
> gunzip zsh*
> rm /var/catman/cat1/zshall.1.gz
> man zshall
>
> Thank you for a future fix.

Comment 1 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-05 18:32:59 UTC
This problem doesn't seem to occur with the Rawhide version (3.0.7-5). Can you
check that one, and reopen if the bug still occurs?

Comment 2 dh_redhat 2000-05-14 05:42:59 UTC
There's no zsh 3.0.7-5 in RawHide. I am looking at

ftp://rawhide.redhat.com/rawhide/i386/RedHat/RPMS/

and all I see is  zsh-3.0.7-4.i386.rpm . . . . . . Mar  8 20:43    470k

I cannot try the version you mentioned so I am reopening the bug.

Comment 3 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2000-05-15 19:18:59 UTC
That's because a new RawHide ahsn't been released since the fix.

Comment 4 Thomas Bjvrklund 2000-11-24 10:24:29 UTC
In zsh-3.0.8-3 this bug is not fixed;
root@diglab3:/var/cache/man/cat1>rm zshall.1.gz 
rm: remove `zshall.1.gz'? y
root@diglab3:/var/cache/man/cat1>man zshall
Formatting page, please wait...
