An updated man package that fixes two bugs is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The man package provides the man, apropos, and whatis tools for finding information and documentation about the Linux system.
Previously, the Japanese version of the man(1) manual page contained a duplicate line in the specification of the "-p pager" option. This update removes the duplicate.
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 this updated package, which fixes these bugs.
