The amusement that I saw,
was that Ben Armstrong took the effort to help.

It is up to you to elaborate what you would like to ask.

That is because your mom is not here. Here we expect that
one does try to go forward with the group. So when there is the advice

   man lh config

will try to show the manual page of two commands ( 'lh' and 'config' )
then take that advice. Your mom would have say that you must type

   man lh_config

And as your mom is not here, you have to adapt to a higher level.
Take time to explain what looks strange to you.

Seeing three postings with
  > testing: man lh config
  > sid: man lb config
without progress, is for me the signal to ignore the poster.

Vitaly it is your turn to make the next step.
