Is there something not right with the man pages in 9.11.25?
As reported to Support :
I have heard two reports that man pages in the 9.11.25 release are messed up. The following link is a screenshot from a Slackware user: https://i.imgur.com/CGmT1Na.png I heard a similar report from https://github.com/pemensik in Red Hat.
Aside, I have just now realised (and this isn't new to 9.11.25) that the .html versions of the ARM don't include the man pages - if you look at /doc/arm/Bv9ARM.ch09.html, what you get is Appendix A, not chapter 9 (the man pages). In fact they're all named similarly and progress through the appendices this way with prev/next too - not sure how you get to the man pages from the index then? (Personally, I look at the .pdf version).
I installed 9.11.25 myself and confirmed this - looks like there's an issue with the on-board man pages as installed. Here's what I'm seeing:
NAMED(8) BIND9 NAMED(8) .SH "NAME" named - Internet domain name server .SH "SYNOPSIS" .HP 144u named [ | [-4] | [-6] ] [-c config-file] [-d debug-level] [-D string] [-E engine-name] [-f] [-g] [-L logfile] [-M option] [-m flag] [-n #cpus] [-p port] [-s] [-S #max-socks] [-t directory] [-U #listeners] :
As opposed to with 9.11.24:
