Default man mkisofs is not man mkisofs

Hi,

I once had cdrkit emerged but unmerged it a long time ago.

cdrecord -version
Cdrecord-ProDVD-ProBD-Clone 2.01.01a50 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu)
Copyright (C) 1995-2008 Jörg Schilling
mkisofs -version
mkisofs 2.01.01a50 (x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu) Copyright (C) 1993-1997
Eric Youngdale (C) 1997-2008 Jörg Schilling

but today I searched them man for a question I don't want to receive a
rtfm for. Now I found out:

man mkisofs:

NAME genisoimage - create ISO9660/Joliet/HFS filesystem with optional
Rock Ridge attributes


How can I get rid of this cdrkit stuff I don't want to have any more?
How to get the real man?

I'm not sure this will help but I have app-cdr/cdrtools-2.01.01_alpha42
installed and it appears to show the mkisofs man page. You may want to
emerge that. I don't think you can have cdrkit and cdrtools installed
at the same time tho. If it helps any, I can burn both CDs and DVDs
with what I have installed.

If you want a copy of the man page, I would be glad to email you what I
have off list.

Hope that helps.

Dale

Hi Dale,

well I have cdrtools installed, too. You are right, you can ether have
cdrkit or cdrtools. Well I think cdrkit is still somewhere breaking
something. The man should be removed if you unmerge a program. It is
taking the place of mkisofs man from cdrtools.

cdrkit used to install:
/usr/share/man/man1/mkisofs.1.bz2 -> /usr/share/man/man1/genisoimage.1.bz2

cdrtools installs:
/usr/share/man/man8/mkisofs.8.bz2

I suspect cdrkit did not clean up after itself properly, and man is finding
the cdrkit man page in man1 first.

Solution to your problem:
Simply delete the symlink in man1 and the thing it points to

thanks for that hint. But running locate I cannot find the files mentioned.
locate mkisofs.8.bz2
/usr/share/man/man8/mkisofs.8.bz2 <--this is to be the correct man.

locate geniso
/usr/portage/app-cdr/xcdroast/files/mkisofs2genisoimage.patch <---what
is that?

cdrkit causes a lot of trouble to me.



[edit]: I just found: /var/cache/man/cat1/mkisofs.1.lzma this is for
sure the wrong man.
can I simply remove this file?

locate may not be the appropriate tool depending on the database update
frequency.
