kernel docs packages


I couldn't find the kernel docs that go with 13.1. These docs would be the result of running this in the top-level kernel source dir.

make pdfdocs
make htmldocs
etc.

Are these not packaged? Are these built ever as part of a release or test cycle?

Do any other slackers ever build these? I am seeing lots of errors from make pdfdocs

Maybe the question is "how much attention is given to DocBook on slackware?".

They are never packaged. If you are a kernel developer you can extract them from the source tree yourself. Otherwise they just would collect dust on the DVD as a separate package.

Yes, trying to build them but too many errors. Throwing in the towel as debugging docbook stuff is something I can't find time for at the moment. I think it's something generic with the xml properties and paths in slack.
