Description Dave Malcolm 2009-05-21 19:31:01 EDT
Description of problem:
Minor issue: all of the manpages in netpbm-progs are plain text, rather than troff macros.
for f in `rpm -ql netpbm-progs | grep /man/` ; 
  echo $f; gunzip -c $f | file - ; 

Looking at the manpages, either directly through "man", or via "gunzip -c $file | less" it looks like all of them have been already processed with troff, and the resulting text had been packaged.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
As above; for instance: man /usr/share/man/man1/pamx.1.gz
Actual results:
- manpages have already been processed with troff; they appear without any emboldening on a tty that can handle it

Expected results:
- manpages should contain troff macros

Comment 3 Radek Vokal 2010-04-13 09:01:09 EDT
Sounds like it should be fixed in current netpbm release.
