Description Andreas Kotowicz 2002-08-12 03:05:07 UTC
yelp complains "manpath not found, looking for MANPATH env". but doing a
"export" shows me that I have a MANPATH set. yelp won't start up
Comment 1 Andreas Kotowicz 2002-08-13 06:27:38 UTC
this seems to be a yelp bug. see
it will be fixed in next version, so yelp 1.0.2 should be masked for now.
Comment 2 Spider (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-08-13 20:14:46 UTC
Hmm, yours crash, mine complains that MANPATH isn't set and still works. 

and yes, echo $MANPATH shows that the path is set.
Comment 3 Gabriele Giorgetti 2002-08-14 12:42:17 UTC
This is from the ChangeLog for yelp 1.0.3:

* Fixed a bug that caused Yelp to segfault on 
  startup if you used MANPATH instead of 

So this bug should be fixed with the new version in portage.
