Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 189743
many Xlib and Xt man pages are broken (partial move from 3x to 3)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:31 EST
Description of problem:
Many man pages which are actually a reference to another main page, point to the
old location of the main page.
Example, the content of /usr/share/man/man3/XCreateSimpleWindow.3x.gz is:
But both XCreateWindow.3x.gz and XCreateSimpleWindow.3x.gz are in man3 not man3x
(even if their extension is 3x.gz and not 3.gz)
I saw the same issue with the Xt library. There may be some other library man
pages with the same issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. man XCreateSimpleWindow
fopen: No such file or directory
Cannot open man page /usr/share/man/man3x/XCreateWindow.3x.gz
No manual entry for XCreateSimpleWindow
To see the man page for XCreateWindow and XCreateSimpleWindow

symlinks for libX11-devel
Same problem seen here. Simplest fix is:
ln -s /usr/share/man/man3 /usr/share/man/man3x
Thanks for the report. This problem was present in the upstream X.Org
sources, and is resolved in the X.Org 7.1 related CVS branches now. It
affects many library components.
We've got the release candidates of 7.1 in rawhide now which should
resolve all of these issues. If any new problems are discovered while
using rawhide, please report them to X.Org directly to ensure they
get resolved in time for the 7.1 release, which is nearing completion.
Setting status to resolved in "RAWHIDE".
