Description Francesco Turco 2012-10-02 18:10:14 UTC
On my system the following files are broken symlinks:

file /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md5.1ssl /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha1.1ssl /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha.1ssl /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-ripemd160.1ssl /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md2.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md5.1ssl:       broken symbolic link to `ssl-md5.1ssl'
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha1.1ssl:      broken symbolic link to `ssl-sha1.1ssl'
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha.1ssl:       broken symbolic link to `ssl-sha.1ssl'
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-ripemd160.1ssl: broken symbolic link to `ssl-ripemd160.1ssl'
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md2.1ssl:       broken symbolic link to `ssl-md2.1ssl'

If I delete them and then re-emerge dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1c, those files are re-created.

Reproducible: Always

Comment 1 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2012-10-02 19:24:41 UTC
works fine for me.  all man pages should be compressed and yours aren't, so something is broken on your side.

$ cd /usr/share/man/man1
$ ls -l openssl-sha1.1ssl*
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 May 20 09:39 openssl-sha1.1ssl.xz -> ssl-sha1.1ssl.xz
$ ls -l ssl-sha1.1ssl.xz 
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 16 May 20 09:39 ssl-sha1.1ssl.xz -> ssl-dgst.1ssl.xz
$ ls -l ssl-dgst.1ssl.xz 
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 3416 May 20 09:39 ssl-dgst.1ssl.xz
Comment 2 Francesco Turco 2012-10-02 21:14:34 UTC
Most openssl related man pages in /usr/share/man/man1 are valid symlinks to xz-compressed files (40 out of 45). Only those 5 man pages symlinks are broken.

Is there anything else I can do for investigating the cause of this problem?

Anyway, I forgot to post the output of emerge -pv openssl:

[ebuild   R    ] dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1c  USE="(sse2) zlib -bindist -gmp -kerberos -rfc3779 -static-libs {-test} -vanilla" 0 kB

This instead is the output of equery check --only-failures openssl:

sounds like bug 437000.  you should post the *full* build log as an attachment.

err, meant bug 437358
Comment 7 Francesco Turco 2012-10-09 20:33:21 UTC
I tried emerging openssl with PORTAGE_COMPRESS="" (that is, without xz compression) and now I have no broken symlinks. In particular I now have:

ls -l /usr/share/man/man1/openssl-{sha,md2,md5,sha1,sha,ripemd160,md2}.1ssl

emerge --info

I confirm the problem. I don't have PORTAGE_COMPRESS set explicitly in my make.conf, which means I use the default value of "bzip2". I get the same broken symlinks.

When I set PORTAGE_COMPRESS to an empty value instead, there are no broken symlinks.
Comment 9 Nikos Chantziaras 2012-12-10 04:33:22 UTC
Btw, I did rebuild bash as indicated by bug 437358, but it doesn't help.
Comment 10 Dale 2012-12-10 05:38:17 UTC
I have the same output here.  I'm amd64, some stable, some not.  I'm on dev-libs/openssl-1.0.0j tho.  Let me know if I can post any info to help with this.

Comment 16 Coacher 2013-05-21 19:38:12 UTC
Similar problems on three different Gentoo amd64 machines: 2 regular and 1 hardened. They all have dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1c installed. The list of broken symlinks varies from one machine to another.

1st machine (with hardened profile):

/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md2.1ssl -> ssl-md2.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md4.1ssl -> ssl-md4.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-mdc2.1ssl -> ssl-mdc2.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha.1ssl -> ssl-sha.1ssl


2nd machine (desktop profile):

/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md5.1ssl -> ssl-md5.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-ripemd160.1ssl -> ssl-ripemd160.1ssl


3rd machine (desktop profile):

/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-md2.1ssl -> ssl-md2.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-ripemd160.1ssl -> ssl-ripemd160.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha1.1ssl -> ssl-sha1.1ssl
/usr/share/man/man1/openssl-sha.1ssl -> ssl-sha.1ssl

Comment 18 Francesco Turco 2014-08-02 12:53:29 UTC
I'm now using dev-libs/openssl-1.0.1h-r3, and all /usr/share/man1/openssl* symlinks are OK. Still using XZ compression. Can you confirm this?
Comment 19 Dave Kemper 2015-01-04 02:01:12 UTC
I can confirm that under x86 with PORTAGE_COMPRESS unspecified in /etc/make.conf, openssl-1.0.1j leaves no broken links under /usr/share/man.  (That is,

find /usr/share/man/ -type l ! -exec test -r {} \; -print

produces no output.)
