Description of problem:
man does not work in rescue environment
A. calls /bin/gunzip which does not exist.
B. in a chroot /mnt/sysimage environment, MANPATH variable not correct.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot to rescue (we used boot.iso and NFS install server)
2. man man
3. gives error to indicate that /bin/gunzip not found and cannot find
man page.
4. makeing a ln -s /usr/bin/gunzip /bin/gunzip fixes for that session.

Then we tried in a chroot environment:

1. chroot /mnt/sysimage
2. man man
3. says man page not found
4. echo $MANPATH 
5. shows only /mnt/sysimage/* paths
6. man -M /usr/share/man man works fine.

Actual results:

Expected results:

Changing product and version.
Comment 2 Eido Inoue 2004-03-24 15:14:40 EST
fixed the gunzip problem in 1.5m2-5. MANPATH problem is to be
deferred. (there's two bugs in one bugzilla. please split them up)
