well, i thought about that for a moment, and i wasnt able to come to any real conclusion. 1) i have only one box that is running STABLE, and its my x/kde workstation. this is also my only computer with half-broken man pages. 2) i have several production and development servers (no desktops), and they are all RELENG. all my releng boxes have working man pages. what do i need to check between my working releng and my stable workstation to find the difference in why the stable has broken mans? tia, jonathan _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
