I'm trying to read the manpage for read(3) on my CentOS system:
$ man read 3 No manual entry for 3
What/Which package do I have to install to get these manpages?
(glibc* packages are installed on my system)
For the man command, the section should be first then the name. Also, the man page for read() on my CentOS 5 system is in section 3p, not 3.
man 3p read
yum -y install man-pages
This will install a large percentage of the programmers' man pages, which do not come by default on a CentOS minimal install.
For programmer man pages on CentOS 7, you also need :-
sudo yum install man-pages-overrides
