xmlto return a non-zero return code when the browser that satisfies the text-www-browser requirement is lynx instead of w3m

Comment 2 Ondrej Vasik 2011-03-03 15:51:13 UTC
Adding Kamil to cc, as he is lynx maintainer and only lynx returns 1 on this empty book.

Comment 3 Dan Horák 2011-03-03 15:57:17 UTC
and possible new feature - show the command line how the browser is doing the conversion when run with "verbose" option

Comment 4 Ondrej Vasik 2011-03-04 07:42:58 UTC
Yep, makes sense, feature from comment #3 was added by https://fedorahosted.org/xmlto/changeset/56/ , thanks for suggestion.

Comment 5 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-05-25 23:18:21 UTC
Looking at the error message, it seems possible that lynx is
being called, told to process a non-existent temporary file.

I don't see the xmlto-test.sh anywhere (and a quick read of
xmlto-0.0.23-4.fc15 doesn't show where/how lynx might be

Comment 6 Ondrej Vasik 2011-05-26 05:25:48 UTC
Thanks for comment, lynx is called in txt format helping script (/usr/share/xmlto/format/docbook/txt) ... however it seems you are right here ... well, probably I could ensure that the file exists (even empty) with touch... these temp files are deleted anyway, so it should not cause any troubles...

Comment 7 Ondrej Vasik 2011-05-30 12:03:41 UTC
Yep, touch seems to solve the issue with empty file... https://fedorahosted.org/xmlto/changeset/57/ ... will try to find some time to finish xmlto 0.0.24 in June or July...

Comment 8 Thomas E. Dickey 2011-05-30 14:03:04 UTC
thanks (I seem to recall this issue reported a while back, in a different
report - at the time I had thought the issue was that the file was removed
before lynx could see it).

Comment 9 Ondrej Vasik 2011-08-25 10:02:07 UTC
xmlto-0.0.24 is already finished and in rawhide (and this issue is not present there) - not worth of an update in released fedora, though - so closing RAWHIDE.

Comment 10 Henrik Nordström 2011-09-14 19:13:32 UTC
Can we please have xmlto-0.0.24 pushed as an update for F15? It's the cause to a number of FTBFS issues in other packages. This causes those packages to not be built at all in the ARMv7 secondary arch, in addition to blocking any F15/F16 updates of those packages as well.
