Description Enrico Scholz 2001-11-30 22:31:08 UTC
Description of Problem:

RPM compresses mans/mpi.share but mpi.7 relies on the uncompressed version:

| $ rpm -ql lam | grep mans
| /usr/share/man/mans/mpi.share.gz
|
| $ zcat /usr/share/man/man7/mpi.7.gz
| [...]
| .so mans/mpi.share

Therefore, calling 'man mpi' fails and gives no senseful output:

---------
$ man mpi | cat
<standard input>:6: realpath on `mans/mpi.share' failed: No such file or
directory

That's a groff bug, it should handle that.
