Description ggerard 1999-06-22 00:52:14 UTC
Under the FILES section for vi, all the referenced files are
prefixed incorrectly with "/var/tmp/vim-root/usr/share/vim"
rather than "/usr/doc/vim-common-5.3"  This would seem to be
an artifact of building under RPM.  Below is an example of
one of the entries.

This issue has been forwarded to a developer for further action.

Comment 2 Jeff Johnson 1999-07-22 15:35:59 UTC
*** Bug 4127 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***

For instance, instead of /usr/bin/vim, they
list /var/tmp/vim-root/usr/bin/vim or whatever, because of
the rpm build system.  It is possible that some of the
documents under /usr/doc share this as well.

Fixed in vim-5.3-8. Thanks for the report.
