Description of problem:
yelp fails to show the bash info documentation
it shows the menu for bash documentation all right, but it fails to browse
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. start yelp
2. click on "Info Pages" at the bottom of the page
3. click on "bash (info)"
4. now click on any of the items in the Contents menu.
Actual Results: The info document "bashref" could not be found. It may have
been removed from your system.
Expected Results: The bash info documentation should show up.
bash documentations works fine in text based info browser.
other info documents also work fine in yelp.
the bug is still present in Red Hat Linux 9
this bug is still present in Severn, yelp-2.2.3-1
this bug is still present in Fedora Core release 0.94 (Severn)
after looking through the /usr/share/info/bash.info.gz file I think I found the
inside /usr/share/info/bash.info.gz it says:
File: bashref.info, Node: Top, Next: Introduction, Prev: (dir), Up: (dir)
while the name of the file is bash.info and not bashref.info.
this explains the error message displayed by yelp:
'The info document "bashref" could not be found. It may have
been removed from your system.'
Then this seems like a bash error.
Fixed in CVS.
fixed in rawhide bash-2.05b-32
