Description jeroen 2005-06-10 09:07:23 UTC
gnome-doc-utils CVS HEAD uses docbook2x-man. This is not provided by any fedora
package i could find. On debian it is part of the docbook2man package.

Comment 1 Tim Waugh 2005-06-10 09:43:14 UTC
What does it do, precisely?  Convert what into what?

Comment 2 jeroen 2005-06-10 10:07:05 UTC
Convert a docbook into a man page. See It is used to generate the man
page for xml2po.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-06-10 10:43:59 UTC
Presumably you mean DocBook XML rather than DocBook SGML.

Use 'xmlto man' for this.
