I've been having a problem with apropos on both my Arch linux install and my ArchBang install.
When I run the
apropos or the
whatis command, it returns "nothing appropriate" for anything I enter, including even things like 'man' and 'ls'.
Other sources have suggested running the
makewhatis command, but both my systems can't find that command. I looked in the /usr/sbin directory, and there's no makewhatis binary located there.
I reinstalled the entire man package, but that made no other changes.
Could this possibly not be present in the packages stored in the arch RPMs?
