The Samba-Bugzilla – Bug 2808
Bad advice/install code in "make install"
Last modified: 2005-08-24 10:20:55 UTC
The makefile says:
1) The SWAT files have been installed. Remember to read the swat/README
for information on enabling and using SWAT
Of course, there is no longer an <anywhere>/swat/README
2) Installing default man pages in /usr/local/samba/man/
cp: cannot access
chmod: WARNING: can't access /usr/local/samba/man/./man1/*1
As it happens, the docs are not part of samba-trunk,
but instead are on svn.samba.org as 'samba-docs', and include
the man pages. The latter seems excessive: however expert
one might be, not reading man pages (or not having them
to read) is A Bad Thing (:-))
I've fixed the first issue - easy.
I'm not so sure how to fix the second one portably though. )-:
Updated installman.sh to skip manpages
when they aren't there.
sorry for the same, cleaning up the database to prevent unecessary reopens of bugs.
