Man pages on Mandriva
I am using Mandriva LE 2005, and I am having weird problems.
1. apropos and whatis don't work, except when I am root. That is, no matter what I look for ("apropos ls" or "whatis ls") it returns with "ls: nothing appropriate". It doesn't get fixed when I do su and become root either. It only works when I do su - and login as root. I have tried running makewhatis as root (and also as user, but as the user, it obviously gives errors). It still doesn't work
2. The man pages for the C functions don't work ("man scanf"), etc, either as root or user. I don't know which packages to install.
I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the man package, but it makes no difference.
I'll be grateful for any help.
