Description Mike A. Harris 2002-11-10 22:53:00 UTC
Description of Problem:

The gdb package does not include all of the documentation, but it
installs gnu-info hooks.  Just no actual info files.  If you build
the rpm of gdb and look at the build log, it will show various
files that get installed to the RPM_BUILD_ROOT but which do not
get packaged.  Right now beehive has checks set to enforce this
and disallow builds from building if they do not either include
files in the file lists, or delete them from the build root.

I would prefer it if these files not get deleted, and instead do
get included.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
gdb in RHL 8.0, and possibly earlier

How Reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Using "pinfo", GNU info, or some other info viewer, open up main screen
2. Go down to:  * Gdb-Internals: (gdbint).      The GNU debugger's internals
3. Hit enter, and get:  "File not found. Press any key..."  (using pinfo)

Please add this documentation to the next build of gdb.
