GCC man pages

Florian Philipp-4
Hi list!

I noticed that recently (probably with the update to gcc-4.3.4 from
gcc-4.3.2-r2) the man and info pages disappeared.

With `eselect files` I could find them in
/usr/share/gcc-data/x86_64-pc-linux-gnu/4.3.4/{info,man}.

Is this correct? How do I tell man and info to search the pages there?

Thanks in advance
Florian Philipp

I am curious about this issue as well.

I've been suffering this since some time ago, couldn't say exactly when
this started, and it seems to be an intermittent problem (right now, for
example, I can see the man page, no problem), I haven't been able to narrow
it or determine why and how exactly this happens, but so far it only
happened to me with the gcc man page.

I've not been too concerned about it because I can always look up for it
online or ssh to my server and see it there. But it's slightly annoying.

I can't help but only confirm that you are not alone.

Did you run "source /etc/profile" ?

Interestingly, this worked :)

I guess I have to play around with my bash config.

no, you don't have to. You just have to reread your environment after changing
gcc. That simple.

Hmm, I didn't think my uptime was high enough for this but you might be
right.

Thanks.

We also have bug 256608 which has been around for some time:
https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=256608

In that case,
MAKEOPTS=-j1 emerge gcc
should do the trick.

But that one has been fixed in 4.4.2 (Don't remember if it was in 4.4.1)
