Here is my (validated to docbookx.dtd 4.1.2) test doc: <?xml version='1.0' encoding='ISO-8859-1'?><!DOCTYPE book SYSTEM "file:///usr/local/share/dtd/docbook/docbookx.dtd"> <book> <bookinfo> <title>The Test Book</title> <author><firstname>Colin</firstname><surname>Meyer</surname></author> </bookinfo> <chapter id="main"> <title>The Main Chapter</title> <section><title>First Section</title> <para>some data</para> <section><title>Sub Section</title><para>another thing</para></section> </section> </chapter> </book> ------- I convert it to fo with (v1.48 docbook xsl): xalan test.dkb $XSLDIR/fo/docbook.xsl test.fo and then: pdfxmltex test.fo Which seems to put me into an interactive mode. If I type ^D, then it ends the process, with a message about the Fatal error. For now I will follow the advice found in the message Bob linked to. Since I can process the resulting test.fo file with fop, and get a pdf with no errors, I am assuming that the problem is with my TeX or PassiveTeX installation. I installed PassiveTeX from SuSE Linux 7.3 rpm files. I can't find the test you mention.
