I get Arch's whole minimalist thing, I really do. But not even providing man-db in Base? C'mon people. That's just absurd.
i mean, i understand that the entire point of base is purely to provide the necessary utilities to install more packages and you're not supposed to actually be using it to do anything else, but you'd think being at least equivalent in utilities to a heavily gutted busybox compile.
@nytpu I'm glad it's not just me. I'm helping someone whom I recommended it to and I'm having 2nd thoughts. A lot of this is just silly.
@sullybiker the kernel itself is an optional dependency for installing arch wtf
@nytpu Correction manpages are there but no tool to read them lmao
@nytpu In fairness the docs do say you may need other packages, but no manpages? No dhcp client? GIve me a fucking break.
