    Try adding yourself to the "man" group in Mandriva, iirc it is the only way to get full access to the man pages in Mandriva. From memory, the way you do this is in the MCC goto the user setup tool -> gruops and add yourself there (thats the way I did it in MDK 10.1)

    Otherwise, do a google search for "man whatever" and the first few results usually will be what you are looking for.

    You said you can find the man pages for those functions in your friend's computer right? It may just be you haven't installed some document packages. So launch the MCC's add/remove software tool, hunt around for documentation and install them.
