	You have to do it in a two-pass process (for more information get the
docbook stylesheets documentation http://nwalsh.com/docbook/dsssl/db146d.zip ) :

	Run jade with the html-index variable set and the html stylesheet :
	jade -t sgml -d ...html/docbook.dsl -V html-index file.sgm

	generate the index pages with collateindex.pl (in the bin directory of the 
docbook stylesheets distribution) :
	perl collateindex.pl -o genindex.sgm

	Reprocess your document with jade
	jade -t sgml -d .../docbook.dsl file.sgm

	Your document must contain an external entity inclusion for the generated 
index :

	<...[
	<!ENTITY index	SYSTEM "genindex.sgm">
	]>
	...
	<!-- at a chapter/section level in your document -->

Hi all,

Now it's possible to convert XML DocBook files through Jade with the comfort 
of the DocBook-tools. As usually, everything is available under

	ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com/pub/docbook-tools/new-trials

or one of its mirrors.

The supported versions of the DTD include only DocBook 4.1 for the moment.

The conversion is still done through the DSSSL style sheets. Andrey and I are 
currently evaluating the best tools to process through XSL style sheets, with 
the help of Norm.

The docbook-utils detect automatically that the processed file is an XML file 
so the process is fully transparent. In case the automated detection would not
work, you can use a new "--dcl" option to specify the SGML declaration to 
use. This new feature works even if it's not a XML document of course.

The modified packages are:
- sgml-common-0.4:
  now includes the SGML declaration for XML
  the ISO entities have been patched to support the new "euro" character

- docbook-dtd41-xml-1.0:
  the XML DTD for DocBook

- docbook-utils-6.0:
  support for XML
  new --dcl option

Enjoy! ;-)

Any feedback welcome, of course.

You asked for it...  :-)
I'm still having trouble re-locating this package at build time, and
there's a clear error in the spec file. I'll start with the spec file,
as that one is easier to fix
line 40 in docbook-utils.spec reads


make install prefix=$DESTDIR/usr mandir=$DESTDIR/usr/share/man/en docdir=/usr/share/doc


it should read


make install prefix=$DESTDIR/usr mandir=$DESTDIR/usr/share/man/en docdir=$DESTDIR/usr/share/doc


Not a big fix.  HOWEVER, that will break the RPM build, as the docbook
utils package doesn't really support being installed to anywhere other
than the locations that you've specified.  You can easily see this if
you try to build the package as a non-root user, or if you try using the
above fix to the spec file.  This is the last bug on my list, so as soon
as it gets fixed, I'll be happy to recomend that these tools be moved
out of the trials stage.  Later,

    Greg

I just checked. It is intentional that docdir is not buildrooted unlike 
mandir. It is due to the way the autoconf process works.

In the Makefile, you have the following:
	...
	htmldir = $(docdir)/html/docbook-utils-0.6
	...
	install-htmlDATA: $(html_DATA)
	        ...
	        $(mkinstalldirs) $(DESTDIR)$(htmldir)
                                          ^^^^^^^^^^^
so the buildrooting is done outside of the "docdir" variable by autoconf 
default behaviour.

I know this is not logical, but I'm not responsible for that.

I encourage you to give a try at building once agin the package to check what 
I'm saying.

I don't really see how this works, but I'm not an auto* expert (yet).  

> I know this is not logical, but I'm not responsible for that.


Do you mean to say that I can't blame my autoconf problems on you?  :)

I know that this can be fixed somehow, as there are countless other
packages that work.  In it's current form, I am NOT able to build an 
RPM for the docbook-utils package unless I'm logged in as root.  The 
RPM guru's say that the only packages that you MUST be root to build are
the kernel packages, because root access is required to create the DEV
entries.  If you want info on building RPMs as non-root, let me know as 
I've got a short article on that. I'll post a message to the RPM-list
tomorrow to see if they can help out.  Thanks,    Greg

Assume it is braindead. Did it? Okay, you did half of the way... ;-)

You haven't autoconf problems. Everyone has a problem with autoconf.

It hasn't to be fixed, because it is not a problem. The only problem is that 
when you read the specfile it looks strange that mandir and docdir behave 
differently.

???? What happens? Should not be needed.

No it should not be necessary. First tell me what's wrong with docbook-utils.

Assume it is braindead. Did it? Okay, you did half of the way... ;-)

You haven't autoconf problems. Everyone has a problem with autoconf.

It hasn't to be fixed, because it is not a problem. The only problem is that 
when you read the specfile it looks strange that mandir and docdir behave 
differently.

No it should not be necessary. First tell me what's wrong with docbook-utils.

No.  However, check out the collateindex.pl script in the stylesheets RPM.
It'll do the trick...

I don't know, but generating an index is multi-step process.
See http://nwalsh.com/docbook/dsssl/doc/otherdoc.html

Thank you... I was already playing with the collateindex.pl script... This
pointer to documentation on the process will help a lot!

Hi!

I've been wondering how to create an index with the current docbook tools?

Adding <indexterm>s doesn't work, even when one adds an empty
<index></index> section (as it is done with <toc></toc>).
