I/O error : Attempt to load network entity http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.5/docbookx.dtd

Description of problem:
RHEL5.2-Server-20080402.nightly installation produces multiple installation
errors when installing gnome-applet-vm 0.1.2 1.el5. Mentioned errors are of
I/O error : Attempt to load network entity
5.2/Concept_Configuring_for_Use_on_a_Network.xml:26: parser error : Entity
'mdash' not defined
Mentioned problem was not present in RHEL5.2-Server-20080401.nightly
I think the error occurs when gnome-applet-vm calls /usr/bin/scrollkeeper-update
in its postin section.
All the files that the installation complains about
come from Virtualization-en-US package.
The tag is a valid entity so it's not an error on my side. I can however hack
around it if there is no other fix available. The problem apparently should have
been fixed with the OMF regression I heard.
Christopher, do you have any advice about what the problem here is or
what component should this bugzilla go to? Are the error messages produced
when calling scrollkeeper-update?
I certainly don't want this bugzilla to sit in the wrong place.
OK, those error messages occur when a package calls scrollkeeper-update
for the first time. I'm not sure why those errors occur though :-(
Three things combine to lead to this error:
1. RH Docs use DocBook 4.5
2. RHEL 5 does not ship DocBook 4.5 DTD
3. Scroll Keeper disables network lookup
OMF files have been removed from the latest builds so this problem should be
solved. Virtualization 5.2-8 should be a good build of this book.
The error can be easily reproduced:
1) rhel5.2 installation with @base Virtualization-en-US scrollkeeper included
2) after the installation, run scrollkeeper-update and you'll get the same error
3) if you run scrollkeeper-update one more time, it exits without errors
verified the error is still present in RHEL5.2-Server-20080414.nightly ...
this error, still present in the RHEL5.2-Server-20080414.nightly ...
is using the Virtualization-*-5.2-8 packages, so I think this bug is still open ...
Mike, I pushed Virtualization-5.2-9 in to brew. Please update the errata.
Verified with Virtualization-5.2-9 / RHEL5.2-Server-20080422.nightly
Tested it on Proposed version of V-G package, found no error. Its Fixed
Version Tested :
OS - RHEL-5.2-Server Beta
