docbook-simple.cat:12:8:E: CATALOG entries cause loop
Last modified: 2013-07-02 23:19:08 EDT
Description of problem:
docbook-simple catalog file seems to be broken
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. $ cat conftest.sgml
<!doctype book PUBLIC "-//OASIS//DTD DocBook V4.2//EN">
2. onsgmls -s conftest.sgml
onsgmls:/etc/sgml/docbook-slides.cat:15:8:E: CATALOG entries cause loop
onsgmls:/etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat:12:8:E: CATALOG entries cause loop
and onsgmls returns with exit code 1.
No error (which is what I got in F-8 and prior versions)
This is breaking the build for some documentation that I work on frequently,
so would appreciate a fix ASAP.
Obviously, docbook-slides is broken the same way --- should I file a separate
bug against it?
Thanks for report... no need for separate bug, just if you want better tracking
of progress. Will try to find out what's causing that issue ASAP. Just as
temporary workaround, remove lines CATALOG /etc/sgml/catalog from
/etc/sgml/docbook-slides.cat and /etc/sgml/docbook-simple.cat and everything
should be ok. It seems that something got broken during merge review process
Fixed and build in rawhide as docbook-simple-1.1-4.fc10, will do docbook-slides
There were and are more issues with docbook-simple - including issue with
updates. Therefore I'm not sure if the F9 update of
docbook-simple/docbook-slides is proper solution. Problem is, that postun of old
package will remove files installed by new package and will break catalogs. yum
reinstall will solve the issue, but I'm not sure what is proper solution for
that case. You could try to reproduce the behaviour by yum reinstall
docbook-simple and checking rpm -V after that. I see this solution as prevention
of update breakage - to move files temporarily to different location - to
prevent deleting of them in %postun of previous package. Do you have other idea?
Slides built as docbook-slides-3.4.0-4.fc10. Same issues... Anyway location
change should be harmless, will check it.
docbook-simple-1.1-4.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
docbook-slides-3.4.0-4.fc9 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 9
Built with location change, works ok, the only issue I found so far is with
updating from F-9 to Rawhide - as when updating package the catalogs remain
registered - which will cause pointing to nonexisting files... will try to solve
that issue in rawhide or next F-9 update. Anyway this change was necessary as
the postun of the packages was terribly broken and any update was breaking old
installation (as postun removed files from new installed package).
docbook-simple-1.1-4.fc9 and docbook-slides-3.4.0-4.fc9 tagged dist-f9-updates ,
don't know why it is not closed automatically by bodhi. Closing CURRENTRELEASE.
docbook-slides-3.4.0-4.fc9 has been pushed to the Fedora 9 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
