Description nt.guilde 2003-01-23 17:12:18 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.3a) Gecko/20021212

Description of problem:
  You have an error in /usr/sbin/makewhatis, which prevents some commands like
'postfix' from appearing in /var/cache/man/whatis. I traced it down to this :

At the end of do_one(), for the 'ls' and 'postfix' man pages :
 
entire_line == "ls \- list directory contents"
entire_line == "postfix \Postfix control program"

In handle_entire_line() :

              if (!match(x, / - /))
                return;

which rids of 'postfix'.

  The difference between the two pages is :

.SH NAME
ls \- list directory contents

and

.SH NAME
postfix
\-
Postfix control program

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


How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. man -k postfix
2.
3.
