On my own server I tried to build the Git RPM’s and that worked, but on the server at work it borked on building the documentation.
The message I got was
asciidoc: FAILED: [tabledef-default] missing section: [tabletags-header]
and Google has never heard of it.
Both servers are running CentOS 5.4 i386, so no differences there. I started
looking for the responsible program and I found out that at home I have
asciidoc version 8.5.1 and at work I have
asciidoc version 8.5.3.
So, at home I saved the current
/etc/asciidoc/asciidoc.conf and upgraded the
package. What a surprise, the docs did not build anymore. So I found the
program that messes up things. But why?
Diffing the new config file with the old one I found two lines with the text
Knowing almost nothing about
asciidoc I am not hindered with knowledge, so I
commented out these lines. I do not have any idea if I break other things, but
now my Git RPM’s build correctly and the documentation looks good.
As far as I’m concerned: Problem Solved.
