Manual Pages!!!

Does anybody know what packages need to add in order for
the manual to work...

# man ls
No manual entry for ls.
#

Thanks,

Richard

If you don't have the manpage for ls, then you probably haven't
installed the SUNWman package.  It is on CD 2 of 2 along with some
other packages which you might want installed.

SUNWman.  Maybe SUNWmfman and SUNWtltkm too.

Also, SUNWdoc, but you appear to have that already installed
since you've got the "man" command.

By the way, you can just go into the directory on the CD that
contains all the 'SUNW....' directory names (i.e. the packages)
and type "grep -i 'manual page' */pkginfo", and this should give
you a list of packages that contain manual pages.

Or, you could try "grep -l 'man/s?man' */pkgmap" in the same
directory.
