Incomplete documentation from boost package
Last modified: 2013-08-09 01:48:56 EDT
Description of problem:
The documentation included in the boost-doc rpm is incomplete.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to find crc.html in the doc.rpm
2. rpm -q -p boost-doc-1.34.1-12.fc9.i386.rpm --list |grep -i crc
1. lynx /usr/share/doc/boost-*/who_s_using_boost_/shrink.html
3. follow link
"Alert!: Unable to access document."
The header crc.hpp provides two implementations of..."
The package has documentation all over it's source tree.
After doing an rpmbuild -bp of the package, you basicly need to execute the
following command to find all the documentation that SHOULD be included in the
doc rpm: (executed in %_topdir )
find BUILD/boost_1_34_1/ -name "*.html"
Fixed in rawhide. Formerly only "doc" documentation was installed, which is
part of the boost book. Now we install "libs" in addition. I verified that crc
documentation in particular is available.
Can you provide an update for previous releases of Fedora (at least F-8)?
