    Tried this. It wants jade. Installed jade. jade is a X Window
    System appliaction. During compilation of
    docbook-utils-0.6.13 I got a message:
    Gtk-WARNING **: cannot open display:

    I view Linux Kernel HTML documentation on a router where I have got only
    an ssh access and no X server?

    I suggest considering replacing the DocBook bloatware for something
    more sane in the kernel tree. You could maybe generate the html
    docs yourself and simply put them somewhere into the Documentation/
    directory into the kernel sources. Or at least on the web, but then
    the people offline couldn't even read the instruction manual for their
    kernel.

    I don't use any distro. I have compiled my operating system from scratch.

    Your talk about distros is OT. I don't have any distro. I have built my
    system from the source. I just
    want to know how to build the kernel HTML docs.

    I have built Gnome, Qt, Xfree86, gcc, glibc, j2sdk1.4.1 and mozille from
    sources, but haven't used dpkg or rpm yet.

    If Linux Kernel is package-only, please tell me. I will do a cat /dev/zero >
    /dev/hda then and move on to OBSD then.
