Sorry to reply twice. The main reason for writing the Guide in Docbook
XML in the first reason was so that it could be included in the Linux
Documentation Project. I figured (and still do) that if a project is on
the Linuxdoc Guides or Howtos list, you'll get wider dissemination and
awareness of the project. Anyway, my process for making a file into
ps/pdf using mozilla + ps2pdf is flawed. The table of contents, index,
and glossary won't match the page numbers, although the formatting would
otherwise be OK Here's the real solution, available at linuxdoc:
Down at the bottom of the page, it goes into a little bit of detail on
how they do it at Linuxdoc. It appears they use a combination of a
custom script, ldp_print, plus the htmldoc utility I mentioned in the
previous message. The heading of the passage is "PDF/Postscript Output".
At the very least, that's the "official" way Linuxdoc updates it.
Alternatively, you can get an updated version by submitting the updated
Guide to LDP, and they'll do it for you. Don't try to use their email
gateway on The Bugzilla Guide, though, it chokes on the multiple file input.
