#5533 closed enhancement (fixed)

Give a better error message when docbook5 files are missing

Reported by: strk Owned by: strk
Priority: medium Milestone: PostGIS 3.5.0
Component: documentation Version: master
Keywords: docbook Cc:


Rather than these scary messages:

It would be useful to know, say, at ./configure time, that the required docbook 5 tools are missing.

We need docbook5-xml to validate the XML and possibly also to create the html and pdf and epub versions

A possible way to check could be running:

xmlcatalog "" ''

Which should exit with an error when docbook5-xml package is missing, although we might be more specific about what we need

Fail early and avoid error flood if docbook5 isn't found
