Mageia Bugzilla – Bug 7759
emacs info viewer doesn't support xz compressed info files
Last modified: 2012-10-29 20:11:54 CET
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.
Created attachment 2936 [details]
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?
A package is being submited to core/updates_testing.
I have requested a packager account already, see https://bugs.mageia.org/show_bug.cgi?id=7605
I can confirm that the package from updates/testing fixed the bug.
if the package stay in testing it's useless
Updated emacs fix reading xz info pages.
QA: procedure is in comment 0
ALL: feel free to complete the advisory
Updated emacs fix reading xz compressed files.
Testing complete on Mageia 2 64-bits. It works fine for me also.
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.
See comment 6 for SRPM.
See comment 7 for advisory.
Could sysadmin please push from core/updates_testing to core/updates.
