Updated man packages that fix one bug are now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.
The man packages provide the man, apropos, and whatis tools to find information and documentation about the Linux system.
Prior to this update, the makewhatis script, which creates the whatis database of manual pages, ignored symbolic links between pages. With this update, the makewhatis script includes symbolic links in the whatis database.
All users of man are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
