I did not, at first, understand what you meant, but I now think that you
mean that when, as root, you type `man ...' you don't find anything. Is
If so, it suggests that MANPATH is set to something unexpected. Type
`echo $MANPATH' to see what is in there.
Do you think that anything in the postgresql installation is responsible?
I can't, at the moment, think of anything that modifies MANPATH, particularly
not in the root account.
