Description Götz Waschk 2009-06-23 18:36:31 UTC
This is with yelp 2.27.1 and Emacs 23.0.95 on Mandriva Cooker. When displaying the Emacs Top page and clicking on "Glossary" I get this error:

Unable to load page

The requested URI "file:///usr/share/info/emacs.lzma#Glossary" is invalid

Needless to say, the info page displays fine in Emacs' Info mode.

workaround: assume files in /usr/share/info/ are info files

This problem applies to all info pages that don't have .info in the filename - the file is just called /usr/share/info/emacs.gz, same problem with texinfo, groff and others.

The patch only works for info files in /usr/share/info/, it just also checks for that path when the file extension is checked.
