_Every_ man page ends with:  (nlu+10


Example with ls man page:
================
$man ls
..
..
should give you access to the complete manual.  (nlu+10
$
================

I tried:
1) man -c ls
2) rm /var/catman/cat1/ls.1.gz
to no avail

If I do what man should do I get correct formatting:
================
$ /usr/bin/groff -Tascii -mandoc /usr/man/man1/ls.1 |less -
is
...
...
       should give you access to the complete manual.

Please set you correct locale in /etc/sysconfig/i18n:
LC_ALL=it_IT
LANG=it
LINGUAS=it

Then man will start to behave

Comment 2 Anonymous 1999-09-23 06:51:59 UTC
I've always had the locale set as you suggest. The i18n is as it is
written by rh60 install.

$ cat /etc/sysconfig/i18n
LANG=it
LINGUAS=it
LC_ALL=it_IT
SYSFONT=lat0-sun16
SYSFONTACM=iso15
$ echo $LANG $LINGUAS $LC_ALL
it it it_IT

The problem persists.

However I have to correct myself: some man pages ends with "nlu",
others have "nlu" just before the end.

$man ln
..
..

              info ln

       should give you access to the complete manual.  (nlu+10
$ man uptime
...

Other suggestions?

Comment 3 Cristian Gafton 2000-02-15 22:14:59 UTC
This must be some weird environment that confises groff and makes it escape the
closing directive for the man pages.

It works here in the lab on a computer configured for it_IT the way you
reported.
