well I know what I would do, I'd just take this opportunity to pratice installing IOS Operating Systems and reinstall it, slower, while ensuring that I install everything, even download another iso just to be sure and to use a fresh one. because, for the amount of time I was using to try and fix it, a fresh install could have been already done by now, along with installing other apps. end pioint: I'd have a fully functinal operating system, if not then I'd do it again, picking up knowlwadge along the way on installing OS's.

I have no idea what the problem here is, but I can say that on Slackware, the man pages are in /usr/man.

I think the problem is; is that when OP installed Slack he/she didn't install 'everything' which is the recommended option during the installation.

When OP ran 'man ls' it returned command not found.
This would suggest that the man pages are not installed.
