Fixed as part of FC3 Bug Week

Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2004-09-26 21:43:40 UTC
Well, almost - waiting for some build systems to be cured after
something went wrong in the weekend. The fix is in CVS. I'll push a
fixed package soon.

Comment 3 Rik van Riel 2004-09-26 22:52:10 UTC
Warren gave me the handy tip of using htmlview instead.  It will try
to start various browsers until one succeeds, so it should work
regardless of whether your system has links, lynx or w3m installed.

Comment 4 Rik van Riel 2004-09-26 22:52:37 UTC
Moving back to assigned until after the package has been built.

Comment 5 Rik van Riel 2004-09-27 15:01:21 UTC
OK, a fixed package is ready.

Comment 6 Curtis Doty 2007-09-29 17:16:53 UTC
This fix drags in unnecessary deps as documented in Bug 312471.

Comment 7 Miroslav Lichvar 2010-04-07 11:11:44 UTC
Closing as WONTFIX. pinfo-0.6.6-4 is the latest version shipped for RHEL-3.
