Fixed as part of FC3 Bug Week
Comment 2 Rik van Riel 2004-09-26 17:43:40 EDT
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 18:52:10 EDT
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 18:52:37 EDT
Moving back to assigned until after the package has been built.
Comment 5 Rik van Riel 2004-09-27 11:01:21 EDT
OK, a fixed package is ready.
Comment 6 Curtis Doty 2007-09-29 13:16:53 EDT
This fix drags in unnecessary deps as documented in Bug 312471.
Comment 7 Miroslav Lichvar 2010-04-07 07:11:44 EDT
Closing as WONTFIX. pinfo-0.6.6-4 is the latest version shipped for RHEL-3.
