Gnome 2.4 installation trouble


I'm running slackware 9.0 and i'm trying to install the new Gnome 2.4 from the source packages

At one point during the configure step, it runs accross Docbook XML DTD 4.1.2 and stops giving an error message that this particular 'thing' is not in the catalog.

now I tried several things, i tried garnome (same error), i tried Dropline Gnome (same error), I tried installing docbook by tlpd howto (no luck, same error)

I'm totally stuck, any help would be very much appreciated.

I downloaded the zip archive of DocBok 4.1.2 from oasis-open.org
and used the how-to from the lpd to install, but no luck.
can't find a docbook tgz anywhere.

If you had dropline gnome downloaded its packages it would be in /var/cache/dropline-installer/
Otherwise I can email it to you if you want, its only around 1mb, though I can't guarantee this can fix your problem.

I've read in a little tutorial on installing GnuCash on slackware 9, that the docbook XML DTD 4.1.2, is part of the yelp-2.2.0-i386-1 package (which is on the slack cd)
So I'll try to install that first and see what happens
