Bug Description

Binary package hint: yelp

Distro: Ubuntu 8.04 Alpha 6
yelp: 2.21.90-0ubuntu2

[reproducable]. Did not find this bug in the list. I am sorry for not knowing exactly how to proceed here. It crashes whenever I click on pkg-config (probably an external link?) in the Anjuta Help [Section 4.6]. As the console gives no output, you will have to deal with the autogenerated infos unless you can give me some hints how to produce debug-output on the console. Or you will have to close the ticket.

I've seen a similar crash when launching yelp with an info url. For instance:

"yelp info:libc"

Ok, it only crashes if it is given a non existing uri. I just installed the libc info pages, and now "yelp info:libc" is not crashing any more.

this bug is still present in Ubuntu 8.04 final.
typing "yelp info:bash" gives a Segmentation Fault.

even if bash-doc package is installed and "info bash" command works as expected I still get a segfault.
