that directory. Now run:
XML to XHTML:
-------------
 
mkdir -p chapter0{1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9} preface appendix{a,b} &&
/usr/bin/openjade -t xml \
-d /usr/share/dsssl/docbook/html/lfs.dsl \
/usr/share/dsssl/docbook/dtds/decls/xml.dcl \
/path/to/index.xml
make BASEDIR=/path/to/output/location
 
 
 
XML to NOCHUNKS-HTML:
--------------------
The NOCHUNKS HTML version is one big HTML file:
/usr/bin/openjade -t sgml \
-V nochunks \
-d /usr/share/dsssl/docbook/html/lfs.dsl \
/usr/share/dsssl/docbook/dtds/decls/xml.dcl \
/path/to/index.xml > nochunks.html
 
XML to TXT:
XML to PDF:
-----------
First create the NOCHUNKS HTML file, then convert by running:
/usr/bin/lynx -dump nochunks.html > output.txt
 
XML to PS and PDF:
------------------
First create the NOCHUNKS HTML file, then convert by starting
htmldoc. You can use the GUI and select the options. If you're
satisfied with the default options you can run this command:
 
/usr/bin/htmldoc --book --firstpage p1 -v -t <type> \
-f <output> nochunks.html
 
replace <type> by pdf13 to create a pdf file or replace <type> by ps3 to
create a ps file. There are other pdf and ps levels, see the man page for
possible other options. Replace <output> with the filename of the ps or
pdf file that is to be generated.
 
make pdf &&
cp lfs.pdf /path/to/output/location
