Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 5639
info has issues
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
there is a bug in the install process for info pages,
leaving specific packages (such as cvs, for example) without
properly installed info pages (just the default man page)
% info cvs
brings the cvs man page in the info screen instead of the
more informative info page
Works for me here ; info cvs brings up the CVS info page.
I get the same problem w/RH 6.1
Note that removing the CVS rpm unsuccessfully uninstalls the info dir
entries for cvs since they weren't successfully installed when
the RPM was installed.
rpm -e cvs-1.10.6-2
install-info: warning: no entries found for `//usr/info/cvs.info.gz'; nothing
install-info: warning: no entries found for `//usr/info/cvsclient.info.gz';
BTW, I thought it might be nice to at least have a documented workaround
install-info /usr/info/cvs.info.gz /usr/info/dir
This does not, however, install an info dir entry for the cvsclient info pages.
Fixed in the cvs package currently in the rawhide tree.
