Re: locatiion of libstdc++-docs

Well, it is in the standard Fedora repos, but weitjong hit on the answer. the package name is libstdc++-docs, not libstdc++-doc.

you can install using yum.

yum install libstdc++-docs

You can use yum to search for names if you don't know the exact package name, too..

for example,

yum search libstdc++

give you this:

Code:
[root@tower20 /]# yum search libstdc++


=========================== N/S Matched: libstdc++ ============================
compat-libstdc++-296.i686 : Compatibility 2.96-RH standard C++ libraries
compat-libstdc++-33.i686 : Compatibility standard C++ libraries
compat-libstdc++-33.x86_64 : Compatibility standard C++ libraries
libstdc++.i686 : GNU Standard C++ Library
libstdc++.x86_64 : GNU Standard C++ Library
libstdc++-devel.i686 : Header files and libraries for C++ development
libstdc++-devel.x86_64 : Header files and libraries for C++ development
libstdc++-docs.x86_64 : Documentation for the GNU standard C++ library
libstdc++-static.i686 : Static libraries for the GNU standard C++ library
libstdc++-static.x86_64 : Static libraries for the GNU standard C++ library

  Name and summary matches only, use "search all" for everything.
Hmmmm...

I do notice something is weird, which could explain it as well. I am on F17, and don't have a F16 or older box handy right now, so could someone check it on there as well?

Look at the package name for libstdc++-docs above in my search results. It shows as a x86_64 arch, which means you won't find it if you have a i686 (32 bit) install (there is no corresponding 1686 package) Doc packages are usually noarch

Re: locatiion of libstdc++-docs

I make the assumption that OP has already installed the package but want to ask where the API documentation is being installed to.

Good point. I have had that same problem before as well. Installed documentation and it seemed to disappear!

At first glance I agree with you that it looks a bit strange. One would think the documentation package should be a "noarch". My main PC (bare metal) still runs F16 x86_64 and it produces the same result as yours in F17.

Incidentally, I have also a F16 i686 VM image. I boot that up and do the same search. Interestingly it just returns the i686 variant of the package this time round.

Code:
[weitjong@vBatam ~]$ yum search libstdc++
Loaded plugins: langpacks, presto, refresh-packagekit
============================ N/S Matched: libstdc++ ============================
compat-libstdc++-296.i686 : Compatibility 2.96-RH standard C++ libraries
compat-libstdc++-33.i686 : Compatibility standard C++ libraries
libstdc++.i686 : GNU Standard C++ Library
libstdc++-devel.i686 : Header files and libraries for C++ development
libstdc++-docs.i686 : Documentation for the GNU standard C++ library
libstdc++-static.i686 : Static libraries for the GNU standard C++ library

  Name and summary matches only, use "search all" for everything.
I am not able to explain why the libstdc++-docs.i686 does not show up in the x86_64 search result though. Probably yum knows both versions are really the same thing which back to the question why it is not a "noarch" in the first place.
