The Installing GnuCash on Slackware page doesn't cover the help files. So, Roberto wrote the following directions to help everyone out.
Roberto, once again, has supplied a build script if you'd like to avoid the steps below.
link to the following file on the internet: http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.1.2/docbookx.dtd, which is part of the package yelp-2.2.0-i386-1.
Therefore, you might want to replace the link to the internet with a link to your local file
file:///usr/share/sgml/docbook/yelp/docbook/dtd/docbookx.dtd by editing those 3 files manually,
or using sed, like I do to create a Slackware .tgz package:
sed -e 's%http://www.oasis-open.org/docbook/xml/4.1.2/docbookx.dtd%file:///usr/share/sgml/docbook/yelp/docbook/dtd/docbookx.dtd%' \ gnucash-guide.xml > gnucash-guide.xml.build mv gnucash-guide.xml.build gnucash-guide.xml
./configure --localstatedir=/var/lib \ <--- scrollkeeper top level dir --prefix=/usr \ <--- gnome top level dir i386-slackware-linux make make install
and remove any references to <your temp dir>.
