Are there instructions anywhere that explain, start to finish, how to
install a set of working tools for converting DocBook documents into
The old sgmltools package provided backends like sgml2ps. The current
sgmltools RPM includes various binaries (eg jade, jadetex, nsgmls,
sgmltools), but no mention in the documentation of backends to produce
The OSWG provides a pointer to a working set of tools
(ftp://sourceware.cygnus.com:/pub/docbook-tools/). These include db2XXX
backends for DocBook, eg db2ps, from the stylesheets package. But there's
no txt backend, and from the package listing that Greg Ferguson's posted I
assume these aren't the tools the LDP uses anyway.
I've looked at two or three tutorial introductions to DocBook. They seem
to mention the software without specifying how to get it set up and working
such that LDP authors can convert documents into the LDP standard formats.
Thanks for any help.
