upgrade problems (FAQ's?), updatedb, man, man pages...

>A few problems with an upgrade to 2.02,
You didn't tell us anything about your system, neither, what Windows you
are using nor the output from cygcheck, so it is a bit difficult to help
>1) When I run updatedb, I get an error that it doesn't like the file
>"pagefile.sys" (who would!),
>and after a long while, "empty database not created"
Works at least here on my Windows NT4 SP4 German Server.
>2) "nice updatedb" says
> "nice: updatedb: No such file or directory"
Perhaps some problem with your environment?
>3) I installed all the man pages, but no "man" command?
You can get man from
- on ftp.franken.de
- in /pub/win32/develop/gnuwin32/cygwin32/porters/Humblet_Pierre_A/B20
- as man-1.5f-cygwin-b20-bin.tar.gz
But be sure to read the readme in the same directory first!
>4) I am surprised that the man.1 pages are all in nroff;
> but no nroff is a part of the standard distribution. How about .hlp or
>.html or .rtf as a more portable and modern format?
You can convert them yourself with man2html, which is part of the above
