Hi All!

There are almost nothing written in the docs about local installation. 
Just a request that please do not try, and the list of required 
packages. Some few words would be excellent for the ones who pay per 
minute for the internet :-) Like for example which dirs and files to 
copy where, and so on.

All I get is this error in the log, and the message that the page is not 
valid, but no real output. (not valid 1 line comment then the page 
source. no true error messages like on the online version.)

I am not member of this list, please CC to my e-mail.

Sun Aug 17 22:43:47 2003] [error] [client] [Sun Aug 17 
22:43:45 2003] check: main::iana_charset_blurb() called too early to 
check prototype at /var/www/cgi-bin/validator/check line 348.
[Sun Aug 17 22:43:47 2003] [error] [client] [Sun Aug 17 
22:43:46 2003] check: Use of uninitialized value in pattern match (m//) 
at /var/www/cgi-bin/validator/check line 589.

I copied the htdocs dir to /usr/local/validator (which is not my htdocs 
dir!), the cgi-bin files to my cgi-bin (thus base.css is reported 
missing) and validator.conf to /etc/w3c/validator (but only coz I saw 
these bugs in the error log, no doc mentions these places!!!)

I have the /usr/bin/onsgmls binary where the config says, and extraced 
the sgml-libs into /usr/local/validator/htdocs/sgml-lib. (default config)

Bug on your page: on validator.w3c.org/source the download 2.8MB 
downloads just 160K and the remainings is in another file listed below 
on that page.

Please note: installing the required packages is relatively easy, most 
distros contain almost all and the 1-2 extra Perl package needs just 1-2 
commands typed, so a paragraph about the VALIDATOR FILES itself (where 
to copy, etc) would be excellent in the package :-)

Many thanks (pls CC me in the reply!!)
