Man pages build in 7.1


Is the configure command missing for the manpages build? Section 6.8.1 give the 'make install' command without a previous configure command.

A look at the extracted archive does not show a Makefile, how then does 'make install' run?

Is /usr/share/man the correct prefix?

Or I'm I missing something?

Thanks.

The command given is correct, nothing else needs to be done.

There isn't? If I untar man-pages-3.35.tar.gz I do see Makefile in the created man-pages-3.35 directory.

Hope this helps.

I do apologize, I downloaded the archives using the wget-list but for some reason the man-pages archive did not download. I saw the man-db archive and thought that was the manpages archive. wget did not list any errors at the end of the downloads.

OK, so as soon as I finish running the gcc checks, I'll try that download again.

Thanks.

The download failed because the link in the wget-list file and on Section 3.2 of the book have moved. From http://linux-man-pages.blogspot.com/...-released.html it is now at:

http://www.kernel.org/pub/linux/docs...es-3.35.tar.gz.

Should this be included in the errata section?

I'm sure the LFS team will make the appropriate change.

There is always this you can use: lfs packages

Hope this helps.
