Follow these instructions for your favourite platform, either UNIX (free tools), Win32 (free tools) or FrameMaker+SGML.
On UNIX we are distributing these tools as RPM packages, providing a binary distribution for intel-baesd GNU/Linux systems, and a source distribution for others [FIXME: must clear this up a bit].
Here is an example of a UNIX session to get and install the free DocBook tool set on a GNU/Linux system. The tools can be found at this location [FIXME: the DSSSL for printed output does the wrong thing with ulink.]
$ ncftp ftp://ftp.cygnus.com/pub/home/rosalia/ ncftp> cd docware/RPMS/i386/ ncftp> mget *.rpm ncftp> quit $ su Password: ultra-sucure # rpm --install sgml-common*.rpm # rpm --install docbook*.rpm # rpm --install stylesheets*.rpm # rpm --install psgml*.rpm # rpm --install jade*.rpm # rpm --install jadetex*.rpm # rpm --install sgml-demo*.rpm
The order of installing packages is important.
When you are upgrading, rather than installing for the first time, the rpm --install steps should be replaced with rpm --upgrade.
You are now ready to edit SGML/DocBook documents.
