Hi everybody,
I'm new to both Solaris and pkgsrc, 	so I don't quite know where to  
begin. I'm running Solaris 10 on x86, and I checked out pkgsrc via  
CVS about an hour ago.

My problem is that when/after pkgsrc is installing man pages, I get  
this error:
=> Automatic manual page handling
=> Registering installation for <xxxxx>
pkg_admin: var_set: can't open temp file for '<xxxxx>/ 
+INSTALLED_INFO' for writing: No such file or directory
pkg_admin: Cannot process pkdbdb

This happens on any package. I first got the error when  
bootstrapping, but on a second try (with no modifications) the  
bootstrap succeeded.

On another note, the man page layout from pkgsrc packages is odd,  
there are no newlines or such, just a huge wall of text, limited to  
65 or so chars wide. Any ideas there as well?

Thanks in advance,

PS. I'm not subscribed to this list (yet), so please make sure to
