Description Sammy 2001-04-17 15:16:23 UTC
The manpage /usr/share/man/man8/rpc.rquotad.8.gz  is a link to
rquotad.8.gz (or quotad.8.gz I forgot) BUT the latter is in another
package, which need not be installed---> thus the former is an
undefined link.

The upshot is that everytime cron runs makewhatis it sends an
e-mail to root saying it did not find that file.

Observation, adding to the spec file:
rm %{buildroot}/%{_mandir}/man8/rpc.rquotad*

around line 77 in the %install section, appears to cure this problem.  
Obviously the analagous change is needed in the quota package

All of the rquotad man pages are now removed during the nfs-utils install.
