Description of problem:
man package missing in Fedora 14
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Install branched Fedora 14 and try using man command
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Branched Fedora 14 located at http://download.fedora.redhat.com/pub/fedora/linux/development/i386/os/
2. Try to run man command, it's not found
3. Try to install "man" package, not found by yum
man command not found
man command should run
Correction, the install location of Branched Fedora 14 is:
man package was substitute by man-db package i fc14 branch.
If I understand correctly, the replacement of man with man-db shouldn't make any difference in practice: calling man at the command line should still invoke the requested man page (e.g. 'man ifconfig' should still bring up the ifconfig man page). However, when I tried running man in my F14 beta installation, I first got an error complaining that the package most wasn't found; I installed most with yum, then ran man again, this time receiving the error message 'TERM environment variable needs set'.
I switched terminals from from Terminal (Xfce4) to gnome-terminal, where I was able to use man to read man pages successfully.
Naresh, what terminal are you using? And does installing most from the repo ('yum install most') help? Are you running the default GNOME installation? (I installed the Xfce Spin.)
I had initially done a minimum install of Branched F14, so it did not include man-db package. Then when did "yum search man", it did not give any results, so raised this bug report
Later, after seeing the resolution of this bug report, I installed man-db package and was able to use man pages
