Re: [suse-security] "What manual page do you want?" message when using ssh

--> The second line is probably caused by a misconfigured call to the 
"man" command. I had this problem when installing the Intel Fortran 
compiler IFC and executing the script
/opt/intel/compiler70/ia32/bin/ifcvars.sh
in the ~/.bashrc file.

Change the line
MANPATH="/opt/intel/compiler70/man":$(man -w); export MANPATH
to
MANPATH="/opt/intel/compiler70/man"; export MANPATH

and it will work without the line you get above. If it's not IFC, it's 
probably some other start-up script that has the "man -w" 
command which causes the error message.

HTH,
Armin
