Can't get "man" to find local html pages
Mon Mar 9 14:57:00 GMT 2009
When I create directories containing "html" pages, man can;t find them.
I have added to "/usr/share/misc/man.conf", the following entry:
"MANPATH /usr/man/lman/htmlman1" and I placed the html file at:
"/usr/man/lman/htmlman1/ntsec.html". I followed the following
instructions per man man:
Man will find HTML pages if they live in directories named as
to be ".html", thus a valid name for an HTML version of the
page would be /usr/share/man/htmlman1/ls.1.html.
I also tried moving html1man1 directory up one level to:
/usr/man/htmlman1 with same effect. What am I doing wrong??
Here is the tail end of "man -d ntsec":
using /usr/bin/lynx -dump to dump HTML pages as text
adding /usr/man to manpath
adding /usr/share/man to manpath
adding /usr/local/apache/man to manpath
adding /usr/man/bsd_man to manpath
No manual entry for ntsec
