Description Walter 2012-08-16 22:07:15 UTC
The man page installed with bonnie++ references /usr/share/doc/bonnie++/readme.html however the path is changed by the ebuild based install to /usr/share/doc/bonnie++-1.96/readme.html (or similar).

Either the man page should be patched (bad solution), or a symlink should be installed by the ebuild in /usr/share/doc (good solution)

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge bonnie++
2. man bonnie++
3. See 'all tests are explained in /usr/share/doc/bonnie++/readme.html' text
4. Look for /usr/share/doc/bonnie++/readme.html
5. Fail.
Actual Results:  
/usr/share/doc/bonnie++/readme.html does not exist

Expected Results:  
/usr/share/doc/bonnie++/readme.html exists
