info <program> just gives me the man page


Hi.

I'm having a problem with accessing the info pages. If I type info grub, for instance, I just get the man page. It is formatted as an info page, but does not provide any links to other pages. To add insult to injury, at the end it says:

Code:
SEE ALSO
       The  full documentation for grub is maintained as a Texinfo manual.  If
       the info and grub programs are properly installed  at  your  site,  the
       command

              info grub

       should give you access to the complete manual.
info coreutils does give me access to the info pages, and presumably there is a route to the grub pages through this, but it seems a very long way around. Anyone else having this problem? Is there a workaround, or a fix, for it?

Thanks,
Rob

You probably need to install the separate grub-doc package to get the info file documentation.
