    man pages on boxgrinder VM's

    Tim Pedone Newbie

      I noticed that man pages are not setup on the VM's that get built using BoxGrinder.  Even the boxgrinder meta appliance doesn't have the man pages setup correctly.  In my VM, I've verified that the man and man-pages packages are installed but still get an error (no manual entry for xxxx) when invoking man for common commands like yum or rpm or even built in shell commands like ls or cp.

          Hi Tim,

           

          I've created BGBUILD-42 to investigate this. I see some errors while building appliances, this is probably the cause:
