Update of bug #23138 (project pspp):

                  Status:                    None => Confirmed              


Follow-up Comment #4:

Well it used to work.  But it seems that recent versions of yelp are totally
broken.  For one thing they appear to no longer be able to open info files
unless they are compressed.   The attached patch works around that problem.

The second problem is that yelp crashes with about 40% probability,
particularly when opening info files.
You can work around that problem by setting the environment variable

So until yelp is fixed, it looks as if opening the reference manual is going
to be problematic.

These problems should be reported to the gnome developers at

(file #15636)
