Re: No man pages on new 5.0 install from CD?

I had the same problem some weeks ago - and submitted a bug report; I suggest 
you submit one, too, so the report is confirmed.

With me, it was even only partial - e.g., try something from manual sections 
OTHER than 1 and 8; for me, these other sections worked.

As I had done not much else, I reinstalled.
