Hi,

When i want to update my gentoo system recently installed i have this message:

$ emerge -uDN world
or
$ emerge -av packagename

I have this message:

Code:
>>> Regenerating /etc/ld.so.cache...
...

>>> No packages selected for removal by clean
>>> Auto-cleaning packages...

>>> No outdated packages were found on your system.


 * Regenerating GNU info directory index...
 * Processed 127 info files; 1 errors
install-info: No such file or directory for /usr/share/info/bashref.info.gz


Do you understand the origin of the problem ?
(1 error..)

Thank you and have a good day.

Antoine

emerge bash done.

I have always the same problem, that is to say :

Code:
install-info: No such file or directory for /usr/share/info/bashref.info.gz


Any idea ?

Thank you

see if
Code:
emerge --sync && emerge portage bash-completion
will solve this, I'm not sure what is going on there.
Can you post emerge --info if you still have that problem after.

I just had this error as well after a world update. From dcoats suggestion I did an emerge bash-completion (a package I'd never heard of before) and the error went away. :D

I looked around on google and found that bashref.info is just some long-winded text that blah-blah-blahs about insignificant caveats related to bash.

You can find a version that's probably similar to what your machine had at: http://src.opensolaris.org/source/xref/sfw/usr/src/cmd/bash/bash-3.0/doc/bashref.info

The error appears to be caused by a dangling reference from /usr/share/info/bashref.info.gz to a nonexistent bash.info.gz

Doing an emerge bash and emerge bash-completion did nothing to remedy the solution. Apparently this file was phased out when I did an
emerge -uDNv world because it was banal. I simply deleted the symlink and voila. No more error.

This error was confusing me too.
Solution is to
unlink /usr/share/info/bashref.info.gz

It seems this file was replaced in favor of bashref.info.bz2 however the symlink was never removed.

Thanks...

Removing the symlink does, indeed , work.

Ah... I've had that problem as well for a while... Thanks for everyone's suggestions!

Dunno about bashref.info being "just some long-winded text that blah-blah-blahs about insignificant caveats related to bash", though. To me, it looks pretty much like a good (although verbose) reference to bash, just like the name suggests. :)
