Hi,

If I run "man xorg.conf", I get the man page, but if I do "man X" or "man xorg", I get "No manual entry for X". Where are the missing man page gone?

The Xorg man page exists for me. A quick search reveals, not unexpectedly, that it's built as part of xorg-server:
Code:
hal man # equery belongs `locate -r 'man/.*/Xorg'`
 * Searching for /usr/share/man/man1/Xorg.1.bz2 ...
x11-base/xorg-server-1.16.4 (/usr/share/man/man1/Xorg.1.bz2)
which I have built like this:
Code:
hal # emerge -1vp xorg-server

These are the packages that would be merged, in reverse order:

Calculating dependencies... done!
[ebuild   R    ] x11-base/xorg-server-1.16.4:0/1.16.1::gentoo  USE="-dmx -doc glamor -ipv6 -kdrive -minimal nptl (-selinux) -static-libs suid -systemd -tslib udev -unwind -wayland -xnest xorg -xvfb" 0 KiB
If you don't see any USE flag differences, then I would suspect minor system borkage.

Edit: Looks like the USE flags do have an effect on what regular documentation is installed. In particular, the presence of the minimal or the absence of the xorg USE flags reduce the amount of installed documentation.
