manual page for X is missing (man X) ?
 
Hello,

This is small problem but..

Running Centos 5.5.
Man page for X ( General information: X(7) ) is missing. Others like Xorg(1) and Xserver(1x) are present.
If it's not removed could someone tell me what package provides it ?

thanks
Vilius

On Debian it appears to be xorg-docs-core.

Well I'm running Centos..

For the time being you can look here:

Hi,

Attached you find the X.7.gz man page.

LQ's upload feature forces certain extensions, so you need to strip the .txt part (X.7.gz.txt -> X.7.gz).

Depending on your distro you might need to unzip the file (X.7.gz -> X.7). Place it in /usr/share/man/man7

Hope this helps.

Well, yes. I know that. But I figured you could use the information to track down the equivalent CentOS package. Chances are the name will be either the same or very similar. Did you try searching for it in your repositories?

Edit: According to this search, X.7.gz is found in xorg-x11-docs-<version>, for RedHat/Fedora.

Yes I did:
Code:

# yum search xorg|grep doc
#

Looks like doc package is not included.

Post #7 : You are right, I didn't find a package like xorg-x11-docs either.

Why not use 1) the online 'man X' http://www.manpagez.com/man/7/X/

Or 2) 'man xorg.conf' : Is reported somewhere to hold the information too.
( Google .. man X .. ).

Neither did I, that's why I attached the X man page in post #5

Because you aren't always able to be on-line? Just one reason that came to mind....

The X man page is more detailed then the Xorg man page, they aren't the same (compare them and you'll see).
