Description of problem:

After a recent rawhide update I started seeing this:

checking for openjade... /usr/bin/openjade
checking for xsltproc... /opt/tarball-gnome2/bin/xsltproc
checking for XML catalog (/etc/xml/catalog)... found
checking for xmlcatalog... /opt/tarball-gnome2/bin/xmlcatalog
checking for DocBook XML DTD V4.1.2 in XML catalog... not found
configure: error: could not find DocBook XML DTD V4.1.2 in XML catalog
*** error during stage configure of gtk-doc: ########## Error running
./configure --prefix /opt/tarball-gnome2 --libdir '${exec_prefix}/lib' 
--disable-static --disable-gtk-doc   *** [9/182]

From config.log:

yum reinstall docbook-dtds fixed this. Somehow my docbook catalog got broken
during rawhide updates it seems...that's another bug I guess.
Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2008-07-04 12:19:32 EDT
Thanks for report, already had the report before your bugzilla via private
email, problem is in missing config(noreplace) for
/usr/share/sgml/docbook/xmlcatalog. Unfortunately - there was request for
marking those catalog files verify(not md5 size mtime) to silence rpm -V. That
caused modification of xmlcatalog file and file with catalogs was replaced by
empty one.

As is not allowed to use config(noreplace) for files in /usr, I have to move it
in /etc and make an symlink. Unfortunately there is no way how to fix those
broken docbook-dtds - as they are comming from post section of docbook-dtds spec
file. I recommend to force reinstall of docbook-dtds. 

"Troublemaker" file xmlcatalog is marked config(noreplace) in
sgml-common-0.6.3-25.fc10 so it should not happen next time. Sorry, but can't
help more, closing CANTFIX. Although it is hopefully fixed RAWHIDE. Hope you
understand the reasons.

Mid-air colision - but you have now the explanation.
Comment 4 Michael J Gruber 2010-11-25 03:10:37 EST
This was reported during the release cycle for an EOLed release.

There has been one possibly related report for Fedora 14 on the Git list:


But the proposed is in the F10 version of sgml-common, so I'm marking this NEXTRELEASE (next relative to the reporter's).
