Description David Keegel 1999-11-22 00:22:14 UTC
After upgrading to RH 6.1, the sox package installs
/usr/man/man1/rec.1 as a symlink pointing to something like
/var/tmp/sox/usr/man/man1/play.1
It would be better if it could just use a relative symlink,
as in "ln -s play.1 /usr/man/man1/rec.1".



The problem this bogus symlink causes is that
/etc/cron.weekly/makewhatis.cron generates an error each week
to root, saying "Read file error: ./rec.1 No such file or directory"
