Description Lina Pezzella (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-01-27 16:16:00 UTC
For an instance, see bug #74929. This happens with the latest version of portage. Doman properly gzips the manpages.

Just an FYI, this bug is preventing most of the current porting efforts.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Does portage gzip manpages on any OS? I thought it did, but I can't find any code to do so...
Comment 2 SpanKY gentoo-dev 2005-01-29 20:31:25 UTC
it must happen on linux because it does it on every box of mine ;)
Comment 3 Lina Pezzella (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2005-02-03 08:16:22 UTC
The fix for this is already in CVS thanks to ferringb.
Unfortunately, we're still waiting on a release for this to get to our userbase.
To put this in perspective, currently every package that gzips manpages
is broken on OSX pending this bug getting fixed.

*Please* can we get this out soon?
