Dependencies needed, by example of a debian system:
apt-get install \
make \
asciidoc \
asciidoc-dblatex \
xsltproc \
dblatex \
docbook5-xml \
mscgen \
graphviz \
(Note that asciidoc-dblatex is required from debian 9 on and did not exist before.)
Dependencies for "make check":
apt-get install libxml2-utils
Prepare your build dir:
autoreconf -fi
Optionally test building all shared content (use -j for parallel building):
make # generate test PDFs
make check # test for asciidoc errors
Install osmo-gsm-manuals:
make install
Build the manuals of a specific Osmocom project:
cd ../osmo-msc # enter the project dir, clone first if needed
./configure --enable-manuals
ls doc/manuals/*.pdf # find the PDFs here
Publish PDFs to the Osmocom server:
cd ../osmo-msc # enter the project dir
make -C doc/manuals publish
To update the VTY reference for a given program, use 'osmo_interact_vty.py -X',
available from git.osmocom.org/python/osmo-python-tests:
cd ~/osmo-python-tests
python3 setup.py install
osmo_interact_vty.py -X -p $VTY_PORT > vty/*_vty_reference.xml
Find the VTY port number at
For example, for osmo-msc, which has VTY port 4254:
a) with an osmo-msc already running:
osmo_interact_vty.py -X -p 4254 > OsmoMSC/vty/msc_vty_reference.xml
b) launching an osmo-msc along:
osmo_interact_vty.py -r "osmo-msc -c ~/src/osmo-msc/doc/examples/osmo-msc/osmo-msc.cfg" \
-X -p 4254 > OsmoMSC/vty/msc_vty_reference.xml
Note that docbook.org since recently are providing DTDs only on HTTPS URLs,
while xmllint is incapable of SSL. Hence it is necessary to locally install the
docbook DTDs. (On Debian, these are included in the docbook5-xml package.)
