todays man update in tw fails on 4 of 5 tw boxes with:

mandb: can't create a temporary filename: Permission denied

the box that succeeds was installed last month. others quite old.

output of "mandb -t" here:

does it need bug report?

Here it works:

rm -rf /var/cache/man/*
rpm -Uhv home/abuild/rpmbuild/RPMS/x86_64/man-2.7.6-0.x86_64.rpm --nodeps


rpm -q --changelog man | head

- Make /var/ache/man a real directory as in system-user-man the
directory is gone

prob was perms, /var/cache/man was root:root, s/b man:man
