Description of problem:
/etc/man.conf from man package is linked to /usr/local/man,
while package filesystem creates man* dirs under /usr/local/share/man
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Red Hat from CD
2.Issue was present in previous versions as well.
Not a big deal, but should be in sync with each other.
Same in 8.0
"/etc/man.conf"? You mean "/etc/man.config", yes.
I don't see any references to /usr/local/* in 8.0's (or 7.3's) /etc/man.config,
other than the MANPATH /usr/local/man. Packages from Red Hat don't install in
/usr/local/share/man, and tarballs that are configure/make with the GNU default
for prefix (/usr/local) normally install in /usr/local/man, not
/usr/local/share/man, so the search behavior seems to be correct.
never mind. I see where you're going with it. duplicate of 65467
