Description Alessandro Crespi 2004-11-26 07:42:28 UTC
Since some time, on all our machines under RHEL 3, we get this during


zcat: ./cancel.1.gz: No such file or directory

Following the symlinks, it is possible to see that the manpage for
cancel is missing:

/usr/share/man/man1/cancel.1.gz -> /etc/alternatives/print-cancelman
/etc/alternatives/print-cancelman -> /usr/share/man/man1/cancel-cups.1.gz

This last file is (/usr/share/man/man1/cancel-cups.1.gz) is not found.

The problem is also present on a (updated) newly installed machine.

Version-Release number of selected component: cups-1.1.17-13.3.16
How reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Type man cancel


1b. Wait for makewhatis.cron to be executed by cron
