Description Tethys 2001-05-17 17:14:38 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.4 i686; en-US; rv:0.9)

Description of problem:
The command "man latin1" doesn't show the latin1 man page

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.man latin1 | more

Actual Results:  I get the error message:

<standard input>:2: realpath on `man7/iso_8859-1.7' failed: No such file or

Expected Results:  I should get the man page!

Additional info:

The file /usr/share/man/man7/latin1.7.gz contains a .so request
for man/iso_8859_1.7, which itself contains a .so request for
man/iso_8859-1.7 (note the dash replacing the final underscore).
Changing the latin1 file to request iso_8859-1.7 directly fixes
the problem.

This is a bug in groff - it has problems handling indirect links to compressed
files. Your workaround works, though - added for man-pages-1.35-7

Comment 2 Michael Schwendt 2001-05-27 19:27:46 UTC
Another easier temporary work-around for Red Hat Linux 7.1 users:

cd /usr/share/man/man7
gunzip iso_8859_1.7.gz iso_8859_2.7.gz
