Info pages failure

I tried to access some miscellaneous info nodes (e.g. shellutils) but they dont seem to exist in this distro. Im using Slackware 10.0 full. Is that right or Im the only one having this problem?
Another thing that I was looking for that dissapered in the version are the Linux-mini-HOWTOs. What happend to them?
Thank you.

Are you sure you did not make a confusion between shellutils and coreutils ? Try to install linux-howtos package for HOWTOs

Info nodes missing

Ok, here are the nodes that I found missing on the source I downloaded from
-all nodes related to fileutils
-all nodes related to sh-utils
-all nodes related to textutils

the Linux-mini-HOWTOs are not part of HOWTOs package anymore, at least on the Slackware10 source I got from the site.

Are these right or am I the only missing these docs?

Thanks again
