MANPATH should not be manually set
Authored by: petruk on Oct 16, '03 05:40:23AM

I get the error "MANPATH: Undefined variable." everytime I open Terminal (ie. the first line in Terminal). Is this a related problem? Most manpages I need are available though...

"MANPATH: Undefined variable."
Authored by: porkchop_d_clown on Oct 16, '03 03:24:39PM

Without seeing your environment, that's kind of hard to diagnose.

I'd guess, however, that you have a .cshrc file that contains something like this:

setenv MANPATH $MANPATH:/my/other/directory/:/even/more/stuff/

If that's the problem, replace $MANPATH so that the line looks like this:

setenv MANPATH `manpath -q`:/my/other/directory/:even/more/stuff/

Hope this helps...
