Modular Xorg manpath

Reported by: DJ Lucas Owned by: dnicholson@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 6.2.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Modular Xorg is using both $XORG_PREFIX/share/man and $XORG_PREFIX/man. Could easily fix with a symlink in preparation section man -> share/man, or force it in the instructions...or do both and future proof it a bit.

Good point. I'm not a fan of compatibility symlinks, in general, but I understand if others prefer that. On the other hand, we can easily add --mandir=$XORG_PREFIX/share/man to the XORG_CONFIG variable in the introduction section. We know all the packages are autotooled, so that would work.

Fixed at r6532. I didn't make the man -> share/man symlink because it doesn't seem to be needed in my experience with --mandir=.../share/man.
