Description of Problem:

I got a number of errors when trying to install the docbook DTDs:

[root@kiev rpms]# ls
docbook-dtd412-xml-1.0-1.noarch.rpm   docbook-dtd41-xml-1.0-7.noarch.rpm
docbook-dtd41-sgml-1.0-10.noarch.rpm
[root@kiev rpms]# rpm -ivh *.rpm

It appears that it is trying to write into /etc/sgml on which doesn't exist
on my system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
	docbook-dtd412-xml-1.0-1
	docbook-dtd41-sgml-1.0-10
	docbook-dtd41-xml-1.0-7

Actual results:

	According to "rpm -qa | grep dtd" these packages were installed on the
system.

Expected Results:

The packages should either install cleanly or not at all.

What does 'rpm -V sgml-common' say?

Comment 2 Stephen Rasku 2001-10-01 11:52:38 EDT
[stephen@kiev users/stephen] 501 $ rpm -V sgml-common
missing    /etc/sgml/sgml.conf
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2001-10-01 13:26:05 EDT
Looks like a duplicate of bug #47485, perhaps.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2001-10-05 05:56:00 EDT
sgml-common-0.6.3-1 now owns /etc/sgml, which should fix this problem.
