Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: MacOS X, Fink DocBook bundle

For those of you who use Mac OS X to develop technical documentation, the Fink package manager (http://fink.sourceforge.net) now has a several packages available that allow you to set up a docbook authoring environment. The packages I have contributed to the fink project include:

docbook-dtd's (all sgml and xml releases) with working catalog files for the most recent releases
ISO 8879 sgml entities
nwalsh stylesheets and documentation
linuxdoc project stylesheets

The files are available in fink's unstable branch, which you can make available to the fink command by editing the "Trees" field of /sw/etc/fink.conf to look something like this:

Trees: <<
local/main local/bootstrap
stable/main stable/crypto
unstable/main unstable/crypto

fink's docbook-bundle pacakge conveniently installs everything at once.

$ fink install docbook-bundle

All the files will be downloaded and installed by fink. Of course, you will need openjade, which is also available from fink. After installing the docbook packages with fink, you will have to complete other tasks before everything is running, such as setting SGML_CATALOG_FILES=/sw/share/sgml/catalog:/sw/share/xml/catalog. Refer to http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/mini/DocBook-Install/ for lots of useful information.

good luck,


Sasha Zucker
