man-db-2.7.6.1-7.fc26

FEDORA-2017-0fbd645750 created by nforro 6 years ago for Fedora 26
  • Set group of /var/cache/man to root and drop setgid bit.
  • Allow configuration of man-db-cache-update service through /etc/sysconfig/man-db.

This update makes file trigger scriptlets run man-db cache update in a transient service configured to prevent system from reboot/shutdown until it finishes.

So long-running cache update should no longer block dnf transaction, but at the same time it shouldn't be possible to interrupt the update prematurely leaving man page index corrupted.

How to install

Updates may require up to 24 hours to propagate to mirrors. If the following command doesn't work, please retry later:

sudo dnf upgrade --refresh --advisory=FEDORA-2017-0fbd645750
