Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230652
Last modified: 2015-05-04 21:33:04 EDT
dejagnu's texinfo documentation does not appear to be built/packaged,
even though e.g. runtest.1 says it should be there.
dejagnu.noarch 1:1.4.4-5.1 installed
This is written in doc/Makefile in the dejagnu distribution:
# FIXME: We need to generate an info doc from SGML somehow, but for
# now, don't install the old texinfo document from version 1.3
# info_TEXINFOS = dejagnu.texi
I "fixed" it by removing the mentions of dejagnu.info from the manpage. Note
that dejagnu ships pdf document (/usr/share/doc/dejagnu-1.4.4/overview.pdf) with
detailed description, which can be in limited way used as a dejagnu.info
I looked at the dejagnu cvs repository, and now they seem to generate
dejagnu.texi from the xml:
$(DOCBOOK2TEXI) --string-param directory-description="The GNU testing
framework." --string-param directory-category="Programming"
mv dejagnu.texi $(srcdir)/doc
... so, would you mind restoring the info file? Like many Emacs users,
I find info to be much friendlier than the alternative formats -- certainly
much more usable than a PDF.
I can file a new bug if you'd prefer.
Updated in rawhide, waiting for push in F8. Ok for you?
FWIW I checked rawhide but didn't see it; I'll check again in a couple days.
dejagnu-1.4.4-11.fc8 has been pushed to the Fedora 8 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
