Arrgh,

I've lost my man :x it's not in one of the usual places:

root@STORE:/bin# which man
root@STORE:/bin# echo $PATH
/usr/local/sbin:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin
root@STORE:/bin#

Anyone have any ideas as to which package this comes in so I can try again.

thanx

are you using openlink?

if yes, then all the man stuff was deleted to save space.

I wiould have thought it was worth keeping the man stuff in OpenLink? A lot of the users of OpenLink are likely to be relatively novice users, so keeping the man support might help them look up information? In fact it might be worth going the other way - looking for man pages for basic Linux stuff that is included in OpenLink but for which the man pages have been omitted by Buffalo?

it was the way frontalot created OpenLink in the beginning....i would have preferred it that way also.

currently i have OpenLink + development tools installed and i have 100 mb of 370 unused.....if we install some stuff then this might get a problem.....

is there no webpage in the internet that collects most of the manpages?
i would like to know that for my personal use..

The Linux Documentation Project has a small listing:

http://www.tldp.org/docs.html#man

I can't remember how it did it, but I remember that Damn Small Linux would call up elinks (lynx) and lookup man pages on one of these sites... probably with a shell script.

perhaps you could just wget this and pipe the output to more?

Actually, googling for "man <thename>" will always give you the man page as one of the first hits. Just use the GNU, not the BSD version. You can also google with a text browser like lynx or w3m, or links.
