Hi everyone, I am setting up TinyMe linux on a Pentium M Dell laptop
(Latitude D600) which has been handed down to (lucky) me. The laptop
is lightweight and the display is large enough to make it good to
carry around. The display is much better than the tiny ones on
I have a kind of major problem. TinyMe linux did not ship with
manpages. I have downloaded the GNU manpages and ran ‘make install’.
The manpages have been installed in /usr/share/man/ but I can only
read tlhem with this unsuitable method.
I can only access man entries this way:
cat /usr/share/man/man*/man_ page.# | less
where man_page. is the utility I want and # is the number of the section 1-8.
Does someone know a way I can get the pages to load when I simply
type: man utility ?
I ran echo $PATH and /usr/share is listed in in my PATH variable.
Thanks, Ken Bernard
