Another psychotic and unhelpful advice:

[root@moonstudio ~]# apropos mount

IOW instead of pointing from  man mount  and  man fstab  to gvfs,
because users are not willing to learn how to use man pages correctly,
how about suggesting to add missing information to the gvfs man pages,
if the information should be missing?

Do you expect pointers from  man ls  to the GNOME file manager, too?

If a user would take a look at  man mount , then why not also taking a
look at "apropos mount" to see related man pages that are available?

Some of us are editing and reading Wikis, before they spam a mailing
list, just to ignore hints.


>From the above link:

"It does not cover the tools apropos or whatis, both of which are used
for searching parts of the manpage data, and both of which have
equivalents in man using the -k and -f switches."

So running

[root@moonstudio ~]# man -k mount

does the job, too.
