GNU info/man build required to read documentation

Description

The language and locale should be setup in CONFIG.SYS.
SET LOCALEDIR=UNIXROOT:\usr\share\locale
SET LANGUAGE=[de|...]
Currently TERM=os2 - so GNU info is not capable to display anything.
Additionally for man pages
MANPATH should refer to /usr/share/man
and
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.

  • Component changed from rpm to other
  • Summary changed from Environment LANGUAGE, LOCALEDIR etc. not valid to GNU info/man build required to read documentation
  • Type changed from defect to task

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.

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from new to closed

the info part is done.
for man-db is a separate ticket http://trac.netlabs.org/ports/ticket/45
so I close that in favor of the man-db ticket
