Upgrading from Fedora 9 with a full reinstall off the non-developers CD image, then installing various packages. man ascii doesn't work -- what do I need to install to get this to work?

It doesn't come bundled with the default man pages, to install it:

yum install man-pages

My Debian system has this installed at /usr/share/man/man7/ascii.7.gz (in section 7 of the manual), and was installed with the package manpages. On Debian systems, tools like apt-file and apt-cache can search uninstalled packages for particular files.

According to the Fedora Package Database (linked in tj111's answer), there is a man-pages package. Install that if you don't have it already. You might check for additional core documentation packages.

edit: John T confirms: man-pages is the package you want.

The package ascii doesn't appear anywhere in the Fedora 11 Package Database, however asciidoc does. If that's what you're looking for, make sure you have asciidoc installed.
