Description Mark Bidewell 2011-02-15 09:26:17 EST
Description of problem:
I was working with CentOS 5 and I was noticing some what appears to be
a functional regression in F14 mandb:

In F14, directories specified in the MANPATH environment variable
seems to be ignored.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible: Every time

Steps to Reproduce:

1.  Add a path to the MANPATH variable
2.  Attempt to use man to read a manpage at that location.
Actual results:
man pages not available

Expected results:
man pages should be shown

Please add the --debug option to a failing 'man' command and post the output.  Thanks in advance.
Comment 2 Mark Bidewell 2011-02-19 11:24:33 EST
This must have been an error on my part.  I cannot reproduce.
