Description Seemant Kulleen (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-22 23:43:40 UTC

nebuchadnezzar gtk+ # qpkg -f /usr/man 
media-libs/alsa-oss-0.9.0_rc1 *
media-sound/alsa-tools-0.9.0_rc1 *

In order to be consistent with FHS/LFH/LFS whathaveyou, man pages should go into
/usr/share/man/man? instead of /usr/man
Comment 1 Arcady Genkin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-23 11:21:49 UTC
Okay, fixed.  Thanks for catching this.
Comment 2 Arcady Genkin (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2002-05-23 11:23:07 UTC
On a closer look, there is a whole whack of other packages that install the man
pages under /usr/man.  Just in case you haven't seen this:

agenkin@bashful:/usr/man$ qpkg -f /usr/man
gnome-extra/mc-4.5.55-r1 *
kde-base/kdoc-2.2.2-r1 *
media-sound/xmms-1.2.6-r1 *
sys-apps/baselayout-1.7.8-r1 *
x11-terms/rxvt-2.7.8 *

with the exception of kdoc (which I don't have installed, and don't want to
install KDE just to check), all the other apps you list are waaaay out of date
from current ones in portage.  All of them have updated ebuilds, and in some
cases the ebuilds were updated for precisely the /usr/man reason.
