Description rizzo 1999-01-12 15:35:55 UTC
Since the configuration file for man(1) is /etc/man.config,
the relative man-page should be called man.config(5) and not

Comment 1 Jay Turner 1999-01-12 16:56:59 UTC
I have verified that this is a bug. The configuration file for man is
/etc/man.config. Typing man man.config does not bring up the proper
man page. But typing man man.conf does. This should be corrected by
renaming the man file properly.

Fixed bug and added man2html files in RPM.
