I find that I prefer pinfo.  Using the arrow keys to move around and
being able to follow links easily enhances my info experience.   Reminds
me of using lynx.

In a console, I tried info on bash and was able to view the introduction
page without any problems.  I don't use it enough for the navigation
keys to be familiar for me, so I didn't really exercise it.  Then I
looked at the info for info and had no problems either.  I think it
must be something on your system, not something general.
