Getting Started

The display of Getting Started help works for me.
I have a ppc64le RHEL-7.4-20170616.3 system checked out from beaker right now.
After 'yum groupinstall "Server with GUI"', I can successfully run subscription-manager-gui and click Help>Getting Started and the help window loads as expected.
Comment 9 John Sefler 2017-06-20 08:48:18 EDT
Sorry - I just realized that my system in comment 8 is ppc64le and this bug report is against ppc64.

Hi all,
I would move this error you yelp component, when it wasn't possible to display documentation in other application. It seems as regression in yelp.

You can also try run following command from console:

yelp /usr/share/gnome/help/subscription-manager/C/subscription-manager.xml

It should open documentation of subsciption-manager-gui. May be it will print some errors. When it will not print any error to console, ten you can try run following command:

strace -o yelp-strace.log yelp /usr/share/gnome/help/subscription-manager/C/subscription-manager.xml

Log file will include all system calls and signals.

HI I try again on RHEL-7.4-Server-ppc64-20170616.3:
1.run #yelp /usr/share/gnome/help/subscription-manager/C/subscription-manager.xml
2. after no error to console then run #strace -o yelp-strace.log yelp /usr/share/gnome/help/subscription-manager/C/subscription-manager.xml
3.the yelp-strace.log please see the attachment.
Comment 13 Jiri Hnidek 2017-06-27 10:09:17 EDT
When I run strace at my computer it is 10 time bigger. Yelp doesn't try to load fonts, icons, etc. at ppc64.

I'm moving this to yelp component, because it seems as regression in yelp (yelp is not able do display any documentation for gedit at this platform too).
