problem with man pages in mandriva one

there seem to be no man pages in the mandriva one package (live install). so i just copied them from a slackware installation. now it works when i open the files with ark. but typing "man less" in console, the output is not formatted correctly:

LESS(1)                                                                LESS(1)

       less - opposite of more

       ESC[1mless -?ESC[0m
       ESC[1mless --helpESC[0m
       ESC[1mless -VESC[0m

how can i get rid of those annoying formatting sequences? any help appreciated

well well well - actually i was looking there, but only under "documentation". doing a database-search for "man" gave me the proper results. sorry, my fault! and thanks for pointing me to the right direction!
