#26 closed task (fixed)

GNU info/man build required to read documentation

Reported by: ak120 Owned by: Yuri Dario
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: other Version:
Severity: Keywords:


The language and locale should be setup in CONFIG.SYS.
SET LOCALEDIR=UNIXROOT:\usr\share\locale
Currently TERM=os2 - so GNU info is not capable to display anything.
Additionally for man pages
MANPATH should refer to /usr/share/man
PAGER to "more" as long no other program is installed

And please only install man pages or info pages documentation stuff, if appropriate tool for viewing them is installed before.

Summary: Environment LANGUAGE, LOCALEDIR etc. not validGNU info/man build required to read documentation
Type: defecttask

GNU info/man needs to be rebuilt using the new unixroot environment settings.

Supporting old builds is not a project target.

Moving this from defect to new task.
