I thought I'd hosed my system too, but I've now installed it
three times and it's still there, so if it is me, I managed
to do it three times in a row. I'm glad to hear I'm not
the only one with the problem. Somebody e-mailed me with a
suggestion to check the permissions on the catman directories,
which I haven't tried yet.
Yes, kernel messages do puke over my current console. I'll
try klogd; thanks.
