Man system missing?

Postby littlebigman » 2008/01/22 20:58:44

Hello

I installed CentOS 5.1 over the Net as a minimum server install, and I see to be missing the man system:

[root@centos tmp]# man
-bash: man: command not found

Google didn't help about how to install the man system itself. What "yum install" do I need to run to solve this?

Thank you.

yum install man-pages

I also suggest you do;
yum check-update
yum update

-bash: man: command not found

This means that you also need to do:

yum install man

Thanks for the tip. I ran the following, and am back in business

yum check-update
yum update
yum install man
yum install man-pages
