Description p5B2EA84B3 2017-03-25 15:36:02 UTC
Fetched from http://ftp.freebsd.org/pub/FreeBSD/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/book.html-split.tar.bz2 for local installation shows that all png images have wrong path

<img src="/local0/docbuild/build/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/handbook/../../../share/images/books/handbook/bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-select-default.png"

instead of
<img src="bsdinstall/bsdinstall-keymap-select-default.png"

possibly other built books are affected.
Comment 1 p5B2EA84B3 2017-04-03 12:07:18 UTC
In latest versions of the documentation all images have still wrong links.

Attention maintainers: Please give a feedback here in a timely manner,  as one never knows if PRs entered ever reaches a responsible person.
Comment 2 Benjamin Kaduk freebsd_committer 2017-04-04 00:57:39 UTC
It reaches people, though I do not have much of an idea why the links look like that.  I would need to know more about the build environment in which that tarball is generated to be able to say anything useful, I think.
Comment 3 p5B2EA84B3 2017-04-05 09:56:52 UTC
The links obviously reflect the path of the environment where it was built.
This is obviously not the path a website can use.

Thanks for the timely feedback, as a missing feedback looks like the PR has gone to nirwana. ;)

I build the handbook myself and the image links looks good.

I have no idea why the links are broken on our download server. We need to investigate.
Comment 5 Glen Barber freebsd_committer 2017-10-06 19:07:17 UTC
I truly do not understand this.  I am unable to reproduce the incorrect URLs, even using the same scripts that generate the file(s) in question.
Comment 6 p5B2EA84B3 2020-01-07 11:59:57 UTC
Ping!! As the problem still exists for all downloadable books in

It is a HTML bug!
Comment 7 p5B2EA84B3 2020-08-08 14:21:46 UTC
After 3 years I my conclusion is to stop contributing to documentation. Bye.
