History

#1 Updated by Albert Lee almost 5 years ago

This is a side effect of having /usr/gnu/bin before /usr/bin in the path. /usr/bin/groff is the correct groff(1). A workaround might be to make sure man(1) runs /usr/bin/groff explicitly.

#2 Updated by Albert Lee almost 5 years ago

  • Category changed from Internationalisation to OS/Net (Kernel and Userland)
  • Assignee set to Albert Lee
  • Target version set to oi_148

Taking, targeting oi_148.

#3 Updated by Albert Lee almost 5 years ago

The actual problem is not groff(1), but /usr/gnu/bin/neqn and /usr/gnu/bin/nroff.

#4 Updated by Albert Lee almost 5 years ago

  • % Done changed from 0 to 80

Hardcoded the paths in man(1):
http://pkgdev.openindiana.org/hg/mq_onnv-gate/file/58e0a79afe38/oi-issue-261-man_cmds

Also included a minor improvement from #281.
