Kde Help Center can't build an index
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:32 EST
Description of problem:
In Konsole, I clicked on help/Konsole Handbook, and the KDE help center popped
up. Building a search index seemed to be the thing to do, so I checked the box
for unix man pages, and clicked on 'Build search index'. On the next screen I
checked 'Application manuals' and clicked on 'Build index'.
The process finished amazingly fast, so I was suspicious that it didn't do
anything at all. That seems to be the case; after clicking on 'Details' the
dialog box ends with 'htdig failed'. It appears that htdig isn't installed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. See above
FINDCMD: find /usr/share/doc/HTML/en/ -name index.docbook
Creating index for 'kde_application_manuals'
I've installed htdig ('yum install htdig'), and the problem goes away.
The rpm for kdebase either needs to have a dependency for htdig added, or it
needs to have a workaround if htdig is not installed.
yes it seems htdig is needed here. I have added requires on htdig in next
kdebase rebuild. It will be available in FC5-update soon. Many thanks for your
