Description

I'm running Solaris 10 for x86 and I cannot view the man page:

man mplayer

Reformatting page. Please Wait...nroff: Out of temp file space; line 4459, file
/usr/share/man/man1/mplayer.1

done

I'm not relly running out of temp space:

I suppose it's the traditional nroff on Solaris, which still implements the
macro storage as an array of limited size.

Then I tried groff 1.19 and it exited with "End of file while still defining .IP
macro".

How about separation mplayer and mencoder man page anyway?

There were some fixes recently regarding invalid groff formatting, you might
want to try the man page from the subversion repository (not sure if this fix is
in 1.0pre8).
