Unable to locate various man pages on Fedora (socket ,bind,signal)


I did check the manpath and the files located there. It just seems that some pages are missing. Appreciate the assist.

Are you getting any errors or warnings? And what version of fedora are you using?

I'm not getting any errors or warnings. I'm just not finding the expected pages on "man -a socket" or "man -a bind", etc.

http://linux.die.net/man/2/socket
http://linux.die.net/man/2/bind

There are the man pages for those. Are these part of the kernel headers you are trying to find?

I was just hoping to find them installed within the environment. On another machine (RedHat Enterprise) they are located in /usr/share/man/man2. Is there an RPM or tarball that I need to acquire?

Hey man I found it after some hardcore searching. You need to install manpages-dev.

Cheers,

Josh

Well, I gave up on the quick fix and reinstalled Fedora 14. But this time I did not use the "live" install. I downloaded the DVD iso and installed with the "development" selection.

Do you have access to the man pages now?
