Full Version: Man 1.6d, Less 3.82 & Groff 1.19.2 Package
OESF Portables Forum > Everything Else > Archived Forums > Zaurus General Forums > General Support and Discussion > Software
now this installs on my zaurus running stock rom (3100) I suspect it will install on a 3000/1000/3200 series without issue(file structure is similiar). Install size is like 8Mb so be sure to have plenty of room, you can reduce it by removing some of the man pages, I didnt include any extra. But I will have a man(pages) package for to zaurus in the future, I will have to list it all out first when I get some time. Now all 3 packages gave some attitude on installing via 'make DESTDIR="/path/to/install" install, so I just read the Makefile files to determine install bin's and paths.

can anyone tell me exactly whats needed from groff for man to work properly, groff is like huge! where as man and less is pretty small.

edit2: add -manpage after nroff -c in the ~/Settings/man.conf file so that the manpage formats correctly, personally I put all my manpages in /hdd2/man-pages than added to the search path in man.conf, works perfectly

***missed a few on hand making the install, will update in the next hour..oops, sorry(fixed)
go get it
btw, let me know if there are any issues.
