Description Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2003-11-17 23:19:18 UTC
need to do a :

ln -s /usr/share/doc/viewcvs-0.9.2_p20030430/html /etc/viewcvs/doc

to get the *docroot* URLs to resolve correctly...


Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
Comment 1 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-01-18 21:08:15 UTC
ping.  anyone on this?  It's trivial...
Comment 2 Julien Allanos (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-03 09:13:20 UTC
please note the doc/ symlink should be deleted and recreated when upgrading viewcvs, to match the new location of the help files. maybe there is be a better workaround.
Comment 3 Jeremy Huddleston (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-03 11:09:41 UTC
yeah, the ebuild needs to be updated to do a:

dosym /usr/share/doc/${PF}/html /etc/viewcvs/doc

in src_install()
Comment 4 Julien Allanos (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-02-12 08:53:58 UTC
confirmed, it works well with the dosym.
Comment 5 Stuart Herbert (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-04-23 01:43:16 UTC
I've added the missing dosym into 'viewcvs-0.9.2_p20030430-r1.ebuild'.  Please test it, and let me know if it works for you.
