Description Martin Vollrathson 2003-01-09 19:36:48 UTC
iptables-1.2.7a-r2 installs man-pages in /man/man8/*

That really can't be good.
Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2003-01-09 19:42:19 UTC
what about 1.2.7a-r3 ? 
that one sticks em in /usr/share/man/man8/ ... 
Comment 2 Martin Vollrathson 2003-01-09 19:56:26 UTC
Maybe so, but iptables-1.2.7a-r3 appears to be masked/unstable.
iptables-1.2.7a-r2 is the latest "stable" iptables, but dumping man-pages in
/man is not very stable behaviour.
Comment 3 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2003-01-09 20:26:15 UTC
you missed the point of my question 
if -r3 works then we can back port the changes made in -r3 to -r2 
can you confirm -r3 installs the man pages in the correct location ? 
Comment 4 Martin Vollrathson 2003-01-09 21:05:40 UTC
Yes, I missed the point. And yes, I can confirm that sys-apps/iptables-1.2.7a-r3
installs the man-pages in /usr/share/man.
