Description Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-24 07:39:15 EST
I get a whole bunch of these when I run makewhatis with man-1.5j-2 and
gzip-1.3.2-2 installed:

zcat: stdout: Broken pipe
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-26 07:56:56 EST
[root@spock root]# rpm -q man gzip 
[root@spock root]# makewhatis 
zcat: ./cancel.1.gz: No such file or directory 
zcat: ./cancel-cups.1.gz: No such file or directory 
[root@spock root]# 
Looks OK here, can you figure out what man pages it's barfing on for you?
Comment 2 Bill Nottingham 2002-02-26 10:58:59 EST
Do you have the rawhide man-pages-ko package installed?
Comment 3 Jonathan Kamens 2002-02-26 11:02:03 EST
I can't duplicate the problem anymore.  I suspect it was caused by a bug in
glibc-2.2.90-6.  I'm not going to close this bug because I'm not sure of what
resolution to assign it (or whether it should perhaps be moved into the glibc
module before being closed).
Comment 4 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2002-02-26 11:04:34 EST
Yes, I can reproduce it with an older glibc. It's another effect of the mmaped stdio bug.
