Description Josh Stone 2011-12-13 21:02:17 UTC
Description of problem:
Quite a few of kernel-doc's packaged xml files are actually symlinks pointing to paths under /builddir/.

You can find the broken links like so:
$ find -L /usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-3.1.5/ -type l

And one example:
$ readlink /usr/share/doc/kernel-doc-3.1.5/Documentation/DocBook/audio.xml

This should be fixed in the next builds on all 3 branches.
