Description Götz Waschk 2012-10-10 12:38:48 CEST
Try to load any info file in emacs that was compressed with xz, e.g.
open info mode in emacs and try to click on tar, you will get the message:
Info file tar does not exist

this works fine with info files compressed with lzma, e.g. sed.info.lzma.

The stand-alone info viewer supports both formats.

add xz support to info mode

It just needs a simple patch like the already included lzma support patch.

Why don't you apply for a packager account and apply the patch yourself?
Comment 3 Thierry Vignaud 2012-10-17 13:59:20 CEST
A package is being submited to core/updates_testing.
Please test
Comment 4 Götz Waschk 2012-10-17 14:46:03 CEST
I have requested a packager account already, see https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7605
Comment 5 Götz Waschk 2012-10-18 14:06:29 CEST
I can confirm that the package from updates/testing fixed the bug.
Comment 6 Manuel Hiebel 2012-10-26 23:37:27 CEST
if the package stay in testing it's useless 

Suggested Advisory:
Updated emacs fix reading xz info pages.

Testing complete on Mageia 2 64-bits. It works fine for me also.
Comment 9 Carolyn Rowse 2012-10-29 19:55:32 CET
Tested on Mga2 32-bit.  Bug reproduced, tried with several files including tar, bash, gawk and finding files and none worked.  After update, all opened fine.

Update validated.

See comment 6 for SRPM.
See comment 7 for advisory.

Could sysadmin please push from core/updates_testing to core/updates.

Thank you.
