/usr/local/man/man8


hello,

when installing applications, and do the make install command , sometimes im getting this :

Code:
test -z "/usr/local/man/man8" || mkdir -p -- "/usr/local/man/man8"
mkdir: `/usr/local/man/man8' exists but is not a directory
make[2]: *** [install-man8] Error 1
tried some workarounds but couldnt find a clue.

dist: fedora core 3

thanks
drag
