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/ <------------------ This line

Should it not be /usr/lib64/ for 64 bit and /usr/lib/ for 32 bit

Yeah I also noticed during the upgrade that /usr/man/ 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!
