Hi there,

Although I have seen this question asked once or twice before, I haven't come across any document that deals with this or any success story (on- or off-line).

"MANDATORY_MANPATH /usr/X11R6/man" missing in /etc/man_db.conf

I don't see this one (mentioned in between the 2 parts you posted above):
Code:
export XORG_CONFIG="--prefix=$XORG_PREFIX --sysconfdir=/etc \
    --mandir=$XORG_PREFIX/share/man --localstatedir=/var"
If you did not set the XORG_CONFIG variable, things are not build/installed correctly. I'm guessing that this is the reason for the error.

This section is there in case you used something different then /usr (as mentioned by me and the book). If you did do this step, you need to restore the original content. Check these 4 entries in /etc/man_db.conf:
Code:
MANDATORY_MANPATH             /usr/X11R6/man
MANPATH_MAP    /usr/X11R6/bin      /usr/X11R6/man
MANPATH_MAP    /usr/bin/X11        /usr/X11R6/man
MANDB_MAP /usr/X11R6/man      /var/cache/man/X11R6
The above reflects what the entries should look like when using /usr as prefix.

Hope this helps.
Hi drunna I dint find the path you mentioned in my /etc/man_db.conf

I have run the commands upto
Code:
cat > /etc/profile.d/xorg.sh << "EOF" &&
XORG_PREFIX="/usr"
XORG_CONFIG="--prefix=$XORG_PREFIX \
             --sysconfdir=/etc \
             --mandir=$XORG_PREFIX/share/man \
             --localstatedir=/var"
export XORG_PREFIX XORG_CONFIG
EOF
chmod 644 /etc/profile.d/xorg.sh
After that the book says I should omit the remaining page if I used the prefix usr/

I used the prefix usr/

Im using the instructions on the page here http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs...n/x/xorg7.html

After that I checked the contents of the file cat /etc/man_db.conf
but I couldnt find MANDATORY_MANPATH /usr/X11R6/man anywhere in the file im running the commands from inside /sources/xc

Please tell me if Ive done something wrong or that path will be added later on to the file.

Do I need to run any other commands further on that page....?

The information in this thread is a over year old and might not reflect the current situation.

If you used /usr as XORG_PREFIX then you probably do not use the /usr/X11R6 entries. They won't hurt, once you reach the Xorg-7.7-1 Testing and Configuration chapter a link is created (Creating an X11R6 Compatibility Symlink) to satisfy packages/programs that depend on it.

I would advise _not_ to add the /usr/X11R6 entries in the man_db.conf file. You'll find out soon enough if your manpages are viewable and can add them if needed.
