Novell ZENworks Linux Management Linux Management 7 - ZLM7 - Interim Release 1


After applying Interim release 1 the error: "No manual entry for rug" occurs when man rug is issued at the linux console.


Fix included in hot patch, follow the instructions in KB 3469853 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management" which can be found at Novell Support
There are two possible workarounds for this issue:

1) Edit /etc/profile.d/zenworks.sh and stop the $MYLANG variable from being included in the $MANPATH variable.

2) Create a symbolic link to the man pages:
ln -s /opt/novell/zenworks/share/man/man1/rug.1 /opt/novell/zenworks/share/man/en/man1/rug.1

Additional Information

Root Cause:
The man pages are installed to /opt/novell/zenworks/share/man/man1 where as the $MANPATH variable is looking to /opt/novell/zenworks/share/man/en/man1.
