Description Daniel Berrange 2004-02-03 11:43:44 EST
Description of problem:
The DocBoook HTML RPMs all contain a dependancy on the 'htmlview'
program. This prevents installation of the manuals on anything other
than Red Hat distributions. The dependancy is completely bogus in any
case, since there are any number of HTML viewers that a user may
choose to read our documentation with.

Funny, I didn't even know I had it:

|$ rpm --query --whatprovides htmlview
|$ rpm -ql htmlview
|$ file /usr/bin/htmlview
|/usr/bin/htmlview: a /bin/bash script text executable
|$ rpm --query --whatrequires htmlview | sort
