Description Brock Organ 1999-10-06 16:21:42 UTC
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

Comment 1 Bill Nottingham 1999-10-06 16:56:59 UTC
Works for me here ; info cvs brings up the CVS info page.

Comment 2 John Hein 2000-01-31 21:33:59 UTC
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';
nothing deleted

BTW, I thought it might be nice to at least have a documented workaround
 on file:

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.
