Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-11-01 19:00:43 EST
Although bash2 includes an info file, it does not run
/sbin/install-info in its post-install phase to actually
install a pointer to this file in the info dir file.
Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-07-31 17:50:00 EDT
We can't fix it because it would cause a pre-requirement loop for new installs
(bash -> install-info -> bash).
Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 2000-07-31 17:52:19 EDT
 I suppose splitting the current bash RPM into bash and bash-docs (only the
latter of which would depend on install-info) is a rather ugly solution, but
it would be a potential one.
