Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2003-07-21 20:15:32 UTC
'info bash' works for me.  Clean install, or upgrade?

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2003-07-21 20:22:17 UTC
I upgraded from 7.3.

"info bash" works for me too.
Plain "info" followed by "m" "bash" fails though
Likewise, M-x info in Emacs brings up dir without a 'bash' entry

(BTW I have a lot of instance of this bug -- 18 different packages.
I'll be reporting the others later.  I wonder if this is some
systematic bug though...)

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2003-07-22 10:22:39 UTC
info, m, bash works for me too.

This from the spec file:

# ***** bash doesn't use install-info. It's always listed in %{_infodir}/dir
# to prevent prereq loops

And the info-dir file in the texinfo src.rpm has the right bit:

$ grep bash info-dir
* bash: (bash).                 The Bourne Again Shell.

Do you have an info.rpmnew by any chance?

Comment 4 Tom Tromey 2003-07-22 14:27:30 UTC
Yes, I do have /usr/share/info/dir.rpmnew
It has entries for "info" and "bash", and that's it.

Where can I learn about how RPMs install new info files?
I assumed it would happen using only install-info.
I'd like to try to figure out the problem before submitting
bugs against the other 17 packages that are missing dir entries...

Comment 5 Tim Waugh 2003-07-28 11:13:45 UTC
Not sure.  But .rpmnew files are created for %config(noreplace) files if they
have been modified from the original payload file.

Comment 6 Tom Tromey 2005-09-09 16:58:40 UTC
This has been fixed since at least FC2.
I couldn't think of a reason to leave it open.
