Description Andrew D. Stadler 2004-09-29 13:46:20 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.3)

Description of problem:
This might be upstream, or it might not - I see references to indexing
support in some of the upstream bugs, so I can't tell if it's
implemented or not.

Basically, not having the ability to search or index the help content
is a tremendous detriment to its useability.

For reference & ideas, see the help viewers in Mac OS X or even (I
know, I know) windows XP.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.  open help
2.  wish you could search for something

Still a major shortcoming in FC3/yelp-2.6.3-1.
Comment 2 Matthew Miller 2005-04-26 11:55:07 EDT
Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.
Comment 3 Andrew D. Stadler 2005-05-03 16:39:39 EDT
Still needed as of FC3/latest - yelp-2.6.3-1
Comment 4 Dave Malcolm 2006-01-11 16:18:11 EST
Probably solveable in FC5 now that we have beagle
Comment 6 Andrew D. Stadler 2006-05-22 18:05:05 EDT
FC5 yelp now supports search!  Yay.  yelp-2.14.1-1.fc5.2

FWIW, I think the results format could use some formatting improvement (for
comparison, try "Mac Help" on OS X).

But I would consider my original complaint "closed".
