Unhappy UPGRADE.TXT error I think


HI there

Please before someone crucifies me

On line 122 of UPGRADE.TXT it says

You might also wish to move these config files over:

/usr/man/man.conf.new <------------------ This line
/usr/share/vim/vimrc.new

Should it not be /usr/lib64/man.conf.new for 64 bit and /usr/lib/man.conf.new for 32 bit


regards

Lawrence

Yeah I also noticed during the upgrade that /usr/man/man.conf.new was missing on my system, but it wasn't a big deal really...

It is a minor error also noted in going from 12.2 to 13.0.

Sometimes I think these are deliberately introduced so that the Slackware user becomes accustomed to the need to think for themselves and do some work on their own. :-/

Man, still accustomed to the 32-bit world... I missed this despite going into the folder and removing the .new! Thanks for the heads up!
