eglibc (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

This manpage used to be present, but is no longer contained in the gilbc-docs package. It is referenced by other man pages.

The function pthread_create() is missing from 'man' pages (and other
stuff related to pthread also).

Besides this, as emacs user (at least to program), I would like the
developers to consider putting this information in the Info system
instead of man, because the info is easier to access.

Thanks in advance.

I faced the same issue ... just check for package named 'manpages-posix-dev' in Ubuntu Software Center ... In my case it is not installed after installation I am able to access the pthread_create man pages and also others.

the upstream eglibc source does ship the man pages and from eyeballing the Makefile I would think they'd be included but obviously something goes wrong along the way. This will need some further inspection.
