Description

LSAC(v2)
The man packages provide the man, apropos, and whatis tools to find information and documentation about the Linux system. This update fixes the following bug: * Prior to this update, the makewhatis script, which creates the whatis database of manual pages, ignored symbolic links between pages. With this update, the makewhatis script includes symbolic links in the whatis database. (BZ#749288) All users of man are advised to upgrade to these updated packages, which fix this bug.
