Description BRULE Herman 2012-03-14 10:28:44 UTC
Hello, for my ssd I have put:
FEATURES="noman noinfo nodoc"

But that's block all python version change:
amber user # eselect python list
Available Python interpreters:
  [1]   python2.7 *
  [2]   python3.2
amber user # eselect python set 1
Couldn't find a man page for python2.7; skipping.

Can you fix it?

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. FEATURES="noman noinfo nodoc"
2. emerge -eav world
3. eselect python set 1

It's just skipping the manpage switch, since none exist.  It's still setting the active python version like it should.

Looks like unsurprising and desirable behaviour to me.
Comment 3 BRULE Herman 2012-03-14 19:23:10 UTC
because just with the console output, it's hard to do the difference of real error, and warning. Can you add warning before? or drop this text (the user know it's haven't the man, it's have choice it)
