3.2 Man Pages: A Quick Way to Install Them?

Post#1 by Bogomips » 10 May 2016, 20:42

Trying to think of a way how best I can install them on my system. Any ideas to start with?

I can't think of a quick way. Reinstalling the packages is probably the only way. I could export them instead of deleting them when creating the modules, then upload them to the server. The current 'man' command should look for the online version.
How do i become super user?

The online version does not have all the man potential, nor have that polished look. :( There is also the possibility that some man pages are module specific.

Then the exercise would be to download them, extract man pages, and create a man module. Hopefully possible to download via ftp.

Or just wait for alienbob's next live version, and lift them all, to which he would hopefully be amenable. :roll:
At the moment utilising those from the last live version by mounting the 0020-slackware_min-current-x86_64.xzm module. 8)
