Man Page Not Found

Filed under: The Linux Blog News — at 6:58 pm on Sunday, March 16, 2008

I’ve added this post because the Linux Man Pages that I have added to this site need to be directed some where when a man page is not found. I stumbled upon the problem after I saw Google trying to index pages that did not exist. My guess is that there are links within the man pages section that are bad.

I will be monitoring this page to see where the hits to this page are coming from but if you followed a link here from the Linux man pages section then I would really appreciate a comment with which page you ended up here from and I will fix the problem.

Thanks in advance,

Thanks Jerbal,

This issue has been corrected, looks like the link was either changed or added correctly. I’ll fix the issue on this end to prevent any more “not found” pages. The correct URL is:
