MAN HELP

Post by Microsp » Sun, 01 Dec 1996 04:00:00



I have just set up my Linux and I couldn't get the man pages up.  When I type "man <command>" it says

sh: /usr/bin/gtbl: No such file or directory
sh: /usr/bin/groff: No such file or directory

I appreciate all the help as this is my 10x reinstall the whole system again.

Thanks.

Rgds.

When you installed your system you also need to install the
'groff' stuff.  On my Slackware distribution it is on the
'ap' disc.  Hope this helps...

I don't know what distribution you have, but you need to install the
"groff" package, is required by MAN.

Reply by E-Mail if you can. I got the Groff package, now how do I get
gtbl. There seems to be no package with this name.

1. Apropos and Man. Help!

I am trying to recreate the whatis database for apropos.  What I get is a huge
file containing everything there is on the system.  I want it to only be man
pages.  Also, if I run mkwhatis with any arguements I get the error message:

Syntax near ]d

Also, where can I get all new man pages?  I need to completely delete and
re-install my man and cat pages cause some stuff is in a totally different
format, some commands are not even listed, and some is binary garbage.  Would
it be sunsite.unc.edu?

ANy help would be greatly appreciated.
