broken man pages in wayland-1.12.0
Submitted by Jose
Assigned to Wayland bug list
Created attachment 128487 patch to add *.c.3 and *.h.3 man files to the install script
Some of the man pages installed have links to non-existent files. When running mandb I see lots of warnings like this:
$ sudo mandb -c ...... mandb: can't open /usr/share/man/man3/wayland-server.c.3: No such file or directory mandb: warning: /usr/share/man/man3/wl_socket_lock.3.gz: bad symlink or ROFF `.so' request .....
When trying to look at the man page for wl_socket_lock I get this:
$ man wl_socket_lock man: can't open /usr/share/man/man3/wayland-server.c.3: No such file or directory No manual entry for wl_socket_lock
This happens with version 1.12.0 and also on today's git's master 721e0b4a.
This is caused by the install scripts not installing some files that some man pages point to. I attach a patch that fixes the problem on my system: it adds the missing *.c.3 and *.h.3 files to the installation.
