Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-04-08 12:24:16 EDT
Works for me.

1. What kind of install?
2. Does 'info' work?
3. What about: 'rpm -qf /usr/share/info/dir'?
Comment 2 Rodary Jacques 2003-04-08 14:33:46 EDT
1. Upgrading from redhat 7.3, and near to regreat it: my very last backup seems
corrupted! 

2. I already told that info works with -f option.

3. "rpm -qf /usr/share/info/dir" output: info-4.3-5 (installed from rh9 AFAIK
from install date). "rpm -qf /usr/share/info/dir" output: info-4.3-5 (installed
from rh9 AFAIK from install date). 
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-04-09 09:30:39 EDT
2. I already told that info works with -f option.

But what does it say if you just run 'info' with no arguments?

Also, how about this?:

env - TERM=xterm info tar
Comment 4 Rodary Jacques 2003-04-15 15:04:36 EDT
info alone gives the same (can't find Top dir)
I didn't  try "env - TERM=xterm info tar" as I am not at home, but anyway info
doesn't work either in text mode.
Comment 5 Rodary Jacques 2003-04-21 06:44:13 EDT
"env - TERM=xterm info tar" gives: "info: Cannot find node `Top'."
info alone or info tar gives: "info: Ne peut pas trouver le noeud « Top »." -:)
Comment 6 Rodary Jacques 2003-04-28 09:38:46 EDT
Looking in /usr/share/info I found a /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew! It works with
it renamed /usr/share/info/dir. Sorry
