after we fixed to integrate the g.html2man script to the grass package, it
is now no longer possible to install the grass package itself, without
manually ignoring this error:
failed on file /opt/grass/tools/g.html2man: cpio: rename failed - Is a
directory error: grass-6.4.3-4.4.x86_64: install failed error:
grass-6.4.3-3.19.x86_64: erase skipped
We haven't found a solution to fix this yet, and because many people
recently complained, that grass can't be updated/installed automatically, we
decided to revert the g.html2man fix for now.
We will build and integrate the g.html2man script to the grass package
again, once we find a solution for the error above.
