Bug 38143

GemStone/S 64 Bit,,,, 2.2.4, 2.2.3, 2.2.2, 2.2.1, 2.2., 2.2, 2.1.4, 2.1.x, 1.2.5, 1.2.4, 1.2.x, 1.1.14, 1.1.x



Install on Linux could leave MANPATH incorrect

On Linux, the system default man path is used when MANPATH is not set, or when MANPATH starts or ends with ':' or contains '::' (that is, contains an empty substring). GemStone modifies the MANPATH during installation, to add $GEMSTONE/doc. However, if there was previously no MANPATH, GemStone incorrectly sets a default MANPATH that does not include ':' or '::', resulting in the system not being able to find man information.


manually reset the MANPATH
