Description Mike Sowka 2003-03-14 22:38:50 UTC
Description of problem:
The /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-*/backend/ps does not have any means to set
paper size that ?is handled? up to that point. Withing the above mentioned file,
the dvips command does not have the -t option.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I've seen this in all of RH releases including Phoebe.

How reproducible:
try using db2ps and getting a USLetter format output!

Steps to Reproduce:
1.make a docbook document
2.run db2ps
Actual results:
an A4 papersize no matter what

Expected results:
a letter format when supplied in the stylesheet

Additional info:
as a workaround, I've edited the /usr/share/sgml/docbook/utils-*/backend/ps and
inserted "-t letter" into the dvips command.
