Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 4231
.info file missing in egcs-1.1.2-12.i386.rpm
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
/usr/info/egcs.info.gz is no longer delivered with the rpm
on the RedHat 6.0 CD
The info file is there but it is called gcc.info.gz. There is a real
bug, however, namely that the /usr/info/dir file points to "egcs"
rather than "gcc".
The entry in /usr/info/dir is generated by running install-info
in the egcs %post so the is an egcs packaging problem. Check
the generated gcc.info.gz file for incorrect entry or whack the
text into the install-info args.
OK, after some investigation, we have found that the bad line
in /usr/info/dir ("egcs:(egcs)") can occur on systems which
have been upgraded from a pre-6.0 release to 6.0. If you install
6.0 afresh, the /usr/info/dir line will read ("gcc: (gcc)") which
is correct. If your system is affected, it should be possible to
work around the problem by uninstalling and reinstalling the egcs
package (but I didn't verify this workaround).
