    No manual entry after switching to zsh


    I am using Linux Gentoo. Recently i decided to switch from bash to zsh shell, I did installed zsh and i changed the "/bin/bash" to /bin/zsh" in my /etc/passwd file

    after re-login and when i try to use a man command I got he following message:
    No manual entry for ....

    If i switch back to bash I can use the man command...

    I know it is a question of missconfiguration somewhere, but i don't know where...

    Thank you

    Most likly it's due to your $MANPATH not being set when you use zsh.

    In bash type
    echo $MANPATH
    and it should spit out a few paths. If you copy these into whichever the zsh config file is, and you should be fine.

    Thank you for your reply, however I checked MANPATH, it is similar in bash and zsh

    --> zsh
    # echo $MANPATH

    --> bash
    echo $MANPATH
