Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 19724
man-pages are corrupted
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:59 EDT
Using man to read the man pages of package lapack-man-3.0-4-i386.rpm leads
to outputs like:
DGESV(l) ) DGESV(l)
DGESV - compute the solution to a real system of linear
equations E * X = B,
TINE DGESV( N, NRHS, A, LDA, IPIV, B, LDB, INFO ) FO )
R INFO, LDA, LDB, N, NRHS NRHS
R IPIV( * ) * )
PRECISION A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ) * )
having a wrong formatted SYNOPSIS'.
Some leading information seems to be cut off. INTEGER -> R ... and so on..
Please fix this, thanks, Michel
I can't reproduce this in Red Hat Linux 7.
Does the man page source look OK? (just zcat through a pipe to less)
Using "zcat /usr/man/manl/dgesv.l.gz | less" delivers:
.TH DGESV l "30 November 1999" "LAPACK version 3.0" ")"
DGESV - compute the solution to a real system of linear equations ^@ E * X = B,
N, NRHS, A, LDA, IPIV, B, LDB, INFO ) ^@FO )
INFO, LDA, LDB, N, NRHS ^@NRHS
IPIV( * ) ^@ * )
PRECISION A( LDA, * ), B( LDB, * ) ^@ * )
DGESV computes the solution to a real system of linear equations
A * X = B,
where A is an N-by-N matrix and X and B are N-by-NRHS matrices.
so the part after .SH SYNOPSIS looks disturbed...
rpm -qf /bin/zcat
Using lapack-man-3.0-8 of RH 7.0 Powertools has rightly formatted man pages, but
the man path is /usr/share/man that is not in the default man path of RH 6.2
OK, so the man page source look bad in 6.2. "rpm -V lapack-man" and "rpm -K
your.i386.rpm" seem OK?
Anyway, a solution is to use the new RPM, and add /usr/share/man to
