User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.3-12 i686)

Description of problem:

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. install util_linux update
2. put "PAGER DEFAULT=less" in your /etc/security/pam_env.conf 
3. login locally (ttyx)
4. try to look to a manpage (eg. man man)
5. echo $PAGER

Actual Results:  sh: less!: command not found
Error executing formatting or display command.
System command (cd /usr/share/man && (echo ".pl 1100i"; /bin/gunzip -c
'/usr/share/man/man1/man.1.gz'; echo; echo ".pl \n(nlu+10") | /usr/bin/gtbl
| /usr/bin/nroff -mandoc | less!) exited with status 32512.
No manual entry for man

echo $PAGER
instead of just less

Expected Results:  i should see a manpager
$PAGER should be "less"
PAGER DEFAULT=/usr/bin/less

Additional info:

it's even worse if i set 

then $PAGER is some binary shit

Did you ever tried the package, before sending it out as an update?



Comment 1 Elliot Lee 2001-10-23 16:50:50 UTC
I can reproduce it on 7.1 with util-linux-2.11f-11.7.1, but not 7.1 with
util-linux-2.10s-* nor on 7.2.
Things that you could try without any help would include updating to 7.2, or
updating your PAM package to the pam-0.75-14 in 7.2.

If the PAM update doesn't work for you, I will try to talk to the PAM packager
and find out what is up, and possibly get a fix into rawhide.

No reply, and it works in latest release, so considering it fixed.
