10.5: View the new 'man' pages on upgraded systems
Authored by: matsw on Dec 13, '07 09:34:33AM

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FROM THE ORIGINAL HINT AUTHOR:

The way the hint is posted is misleanding because it makes the "for f ..." script in the box stand out. The "for f ..." script is the complicated way of doing things and REQUIRES A SEPARATE CLEAN INSTALL OF LEOPARD. If you don't have the right setup, all your man pages will be deleted.

So for most people, I recommend executing the script rm-old-man.sh.gz that is linked to in the hint as [23KB download] (you have to decompress is first).

10.5: View the new 'man' pages on upgraded systems

If this way of doing things is ore difficult AND requires a fresh install of 10.5, what sense does it make to do anything but a fresh install of 10.5. Doesn't a fresh install of 10.5 make this issue of left over 10.4 man pages moot?
