Description Chris Siebenmann 1999-11-02 00:00:43 UTC
Although bash2 includes an info file, it does not run
/sbin/install-info in its post-install phase to actually
install a pointer to this file in the info dir file.

Comment 1 Bernhard Rosenkraenzer 2000-07-31 21:50:00 UTC
We can't fix it because it would cause a pre-requirement loop for new installs
(bash -> install-info -> bash).

Comment 2 Chris Siebenmann 2000-07-31 21:52:19 UTC
 I suppose splitting the current bash RPM into bash and bash-docs (only the
latter of which would depend on install-info) is a rather ugly solution, but
it would be a potential one.
