17:25 gottreu Is the project at the point where one would expect it to fully produce a pdf on a ubuntu 10.04 system?
17:25 masak it should.
17:26 masak if it doesn't, you either don't have the required packages installed,
17:26 masak or you've found a bug in the build process.

17:33 gottreu well i get 2 non-fatal errors from PseudoPod::LaTeX (pseudopod::html is fine).  Then get a fatal error from something I assume TeX based.  It is solved by escaping three exclamation points in UsingPerl6.letter.idx.
17:34 masak left #perl6book
17:34 moritz_ what's the error you get?
17:35 gottreu Use of uninitialized value in concatenation (.) or string at /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.1/Pod/PseudoPod/LaTeX.pm line ---.
17:35 gottreu I've modified it, so the line numbers are off.
17:35 moritz_ that's a warning, not an error
17:36 gottreu The fatal error is:  (repeated for line 92 and 96)
17:36 gottreu !! Input index error (file = UsingPerl6.letter.idx, line = 88):
17:36 gottreu -- Illegal null field.
17:36 gottreu heh, true.
17:36 moritz_ right, that's TeX
17:39 gottreu So do i need to report that to you folks, or the TeX project?
17:39 moritz_ probably to us :-)
17:39 moritz_ and it sounds like you had a patch, too
17:40 moritz_ if so, I can give you commit access to the repo, and you can push your changes
17:40 moritz_ do you have a github ID?
17:40 gottreu not a patch
17:40 gottreu i modified a file created by the process
17:40 gottreu not the processing device
17:40 moritz_ ah
17:41 gottreu i'm still tryign to figure out how to get the Monson's makefile to tell me what does the "UsingPerl6.letter.idx --> UsingPerl6.letter.ind" step
17:41 * moritz_ is not really familiar with the build process
17:42 moritz_ anyway, if you submit that bug to http://github.com/perl6/book/issues/ it will greatly increase your chances for a fix
17:42 * gottreu is frightened by the build process.
17:42 * moritz_ too
20:17 mfollett I get that too, on a clean working directory, lines 87, 91, and 95
20:19 mfollett sadly, I don't understand anything about it =/
22:16 mfollett left #perl6book
