Description Andreas Kotowicz 2002-08-12 03:05:07 UTC
yelp complains "manpath not found, looking for MANPATH env". but doing a
"export" shows me that I have a MANPATH set. yelp won't start up
Comment 1 Andreas Kotowicz 2002-08-13 06:27:38 UTC
this seems to be a yelp bug. see
it will be fixed in next version, so yelp 1.0.2 should be masked for now.

Hmm, yours crash, mine complains that MANPATH isn't set and still works. 

and yes, echo $MANPATH shows that the path is set.

This is from the ChangeLog for yelp 1.0.3:

* Fixed a bug that caused Yelp to segfault on 
  startup if you used MANPATH instead of 

So this bug should be fixed with the new version in portage.
