TRASHED my /usr/share man doesn't

Well ... I managed to trash my /usr/share directory.
Reinstalled  sshare.aa and my manpages.
groff cant find DESC file, when I man.

What did I miss?

If I upgrade to 2.1.0, will this help to correct my error?

Fatigue can make you do some funny things. I recompiled groff 1.09
placed the appropriate directories in /usr/share and the files to go
in them. All works OK now.

1. Mounting Linux /usr/man to SunOS /usr/share/man

Hi there!

I have been able to mount my linux root volume to the
Sun 1+ that we have here.  Works like a charm!

I went to mount my linux:/usr/man to the sun at mount point
/usr/share/man because no man pages are installed on our
Sun (not enough disk space anymore).

I used the command:

mount -o soft -t nfs linux:/usr/man /usr/share/man

I can chdir to the area and see the appropriate subdirectories
where everyone has read access to the files.  The instant we try
to read a man page (i.e. man routed), the connection locks up and
we must reboot the linux box.  In the mean time we get a timeout
on nfs connection error.  What gives?

Any comments, or hints?

Chris
