Re: Info never install

Hi folks,

Does anyone have informations about Debian's install-info
program?  Are there any problems in Debian's install-info?

Currently emacs-w3m excludes it when installing info files.
That behavior has followed the fashion of Gnus, so Gnus does do
the same either.  It seems that it appeared first in the
emacs-lisp-intro package.  However, it has disappeared now in
the Emacs CVS head.  Probably we should also abolish it.

I forward a message sent by Artiom Neganov for a reply to me.

  Forget what I said - I can't reproduce what I've reported - I did
  something wrong, its my fault, sorry.

> What does your `install-info' return for the `--version' option?

% install-info --version| sed 1q | fgrep -s -i debian
Debian install-info 1.10.15.  Copyright (C) 1994,1995

and correspondingly:

% install-info --version| sed 1q | fgrep -s -v -i debian

But still I don't understand why you want to exclude Debain's

After changing 'fgrep -s -v -i debian' to 'fgrep -s -v -i ddebian':

% make install
/bin/sh ../mkinstalldirs /usr/local/info
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 emacs-w3m.info /usr/local/info/emacs-w3m.info
 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 emacs-w3m-ja.info /usr/local/info/emacs-w3m-ja.info

 /usr/bin/install -c -m 644 emacs-w3m-ja.info-3 /usr/local/info/emacs-w3m-ja.info-3
 install-info --info-dir=/usr/local/info /usr/local/info/emacs-w3m.info

Node installed fine on the top of Emacs' info tree.
Maybe there were some problems with debian's install-info in the past?
