Description Eric Jacoboni 2012-09-04 23:53:14 UTC
On a fresh F17 installation, rubygem-rdoc-3.12.3.fc17 doesn't provide standard ruby documentation :

$ ri String
Nothing known about String

(same thing whatever is given to ri..)

Expected results should be :

= String < Object

= Includes:
Comparable (from ruby core)

As it is common for many rubygems, the documentation is split into the -doc subpackage, i.e. # yum install rubygem-rdoc-doc should solve your issue.

Comment 2 Eric Jacoboni 2012-09-05 11:03:29 UTC
I don't speak about the rubygem-rdoc documentation but of the documentation of ruby itself...

Comment 3 Eric Jacoboni 2012-09-05 15:49:22 UTC
I've found that removing the whole ruby stuff and reinstalling with yum install rubygem-rdoc.x86_64 "solves" the problem. As the .x86_64 (3.9.4-15.fc17) package does contains the documentation.

The rubygem-rdoc.noarch is newer (3.12-3.fc17) and miss the ruby documentation...

Comment 6 Vít Ondruch 2012-09-06 14:41:49 UTC
Actually you were right. I split the Ruby's documentation out of the rubygem-rdoc into its own -doc subpackage, so the updates to rubygem-rdoc will not remove the Ruby's documentation. There was also bug in rubygem-rdoc (wrong documentation search patch) and I fixed it as well.

Comment 7 Fedora Update System 2012-09-07 11:37:33 UTC
Package ruby-, rubygem-rdoc-3.12-4.fc17:
* should fix your issue,

I've updated to the two package mentionned in the previous comment but my problem is still there :

$ ri String
Nothing know about String

Comment 9 Eric Jacoboni 2012-09-07 22:09:43 UTC
Well... Sorry. Installing ruby-doc fixes the problem.

All is fine, now.
