Description Jered Heeschen 2004-08-15 13:57:36 UTC
The man pages are not in the manpath in Panther for the Gentoo Mac OS X 2004-07-26 installer.  To allow manpath to find them:

Change the PATH entry added to /etc/profile during the install from "/usr/lib/portage/bin/" to "/usr/lib/portage/bin" (remove the trailing slash).  The trailing slash throws manpath off in Panther when it's looking for man pages based on PATH entries.

Move or symlink the manpages in /usr/lib/portage/man to "man1" and "man5" subdirectories as appropriate.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try "man emerge"
Actual Results:  
Emerge man page not found.

Expected Results:  
Displayed man page for emerge.

portage installs man pages to /usr/share/man/man?/

if something is different with OS X, that's an OS X bug, not a portage bug

emerging portage with -collision-protect installs manpages to /usr/share/man/man?.
(Probably we better remove /usr/lib/portage/man from the next Gentoo for Mac OS X installer)

Thnxs for the input, we hope to have this fixed in the next installer.
Comment 5 Mamoru KOMACHI (RETIRED) gentoo-dev 2004-12-03 18:26:36 UTC
Fixed in the latest installer.
