apps broke after 2.6.9 upgrade
strange problem. i installed 2.6.9 using my .config and after the system first booted i tried to pipe dmesg to less and it only displayed the first page then quit. when i do "less --help" it does nothing. also when trying to RTFM man dies with:


root@skrappy:~# man less
Error executing formatting or display command.
System command (cd /usr/man && (echo ".ll 12.4i"; echo ".pl 1100i"; /bin/gunzip -c '/usr/man/man1/less.1.gz'; echo ".\\\""; echo ".pl \n(nlu+10") | /usr/bin/gtbl | /usr/bin/nroff -S -mandoc | /usr/bin/less -is) exited with status 256.
No manual entry for less

basically less died... so then i went back to and less works. i checked mod time on less and it hasn't been messed w/. i also noticed that i couldn't ssh into my box anymore. im getting this:


root@skrappy:~# ssh localhost
ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/libexec/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory
Host key verification failed.

X and others seem to be working, but who knows.. any ideas?
