Description Marc MERLIN 1999-05-04 05:50:01 UTC
The file has the following line:
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/local/bin          /usr/local/man

It would be nice to add
MANPATH_MAP     /usr/local/sbin         /usr/local/man

Comment 1 Marc MERLIN 1999-05-04 05:58:59 UTC
BTW, is there a good reason for makewhatis to be run every night _and_
every weekend?
> rpm -ql man

Comment 2 Michael K. Johnson 1999-05-10 20:38:59 UTC
As far as the cron entries, they are different:

--- ../sources/makewhatis.crondaily     Fri Apr  9 18:56:38 1999
+++ ../sources/makewhatis.cronweekly    Fri Apr  9 18:55:35 1999

 # happen is that they will temporarily corrupt the database...
 [ -f $LOCKFILE ] && exit 0
 touch $LOCKFILE
-makewhatis -u -w
+makewhatis -w
 rm -f $LOCKFILE
 exit 0

The weekly one rebuilds the database, in correct order; the
daily one adds new entries to the end of the database.

/usr/local/sbin is added to MANPATH_MAP for 1.5g-3.  This will
not be an errata fix, but will be available in RawHide.

Comment 3 Michael K. Johnson 1999-05-10 21:55:59 UTC
man-1.5g-3 is now built into RawHide, and will be available in the
next RawHide release.
