Only "Halbwissen" (half knowledge ?) here:

back in the early KDE 2 days getting that SGML and docbook stuff working was a 
major PITA, nothing worked, stuff had to be patched, etc. Then something was 
changed, and suddenly it just worked.
I suspect that this change may have been to include these embedded copies in 

With this change, will we stay at the "it just works" level ?

Is this the package I need for slackware ?
