I've just been struggling to install the CVS version of the validator 
and have finally found the problem.

I got the validator all setup but it didn't seem to be parsing the pages 
properly. I started looking through the 'check' script and found the 

    557 # Set final command to use.
    558 #my @cmd = ($CFG->{SGML_Parser}, '-c', $catalog, '-E0', @xmlflags);
    559 my @cmd = ('/usr/bin/onsgmls', '-c', 
'/usr/local/validator/htdocs/sgml-lib/xml.soc', '-E0', @xmlflags);

The location of the onsgml is hardcoded in the source! There's even a 
line above it with the right syntax commented out. When the comments are 
swapped to form:

    557 # Set final command to use.
    558 my @cmd = ($CFG->{SGML_Parser}, '-c', $catalog, '-E0', @xmlflags);
    559 #my @cmd = ('/usr/bin/onsgmls', '-c', 
'/usr/local/validator/htdocs/sgml-lib/xml.soc', '-E0', @xmlflags);

It all works fine.

Some other comments:

I've setup script alias's so /cgi-bin goes to httpd/cgi-bin but the 
links (including stylesheet links) in the templates are relative and 
consequently break meaning I have to manually edit the templates.

Also the CVS repository seems to be missing the html-3.2.dtd file?

Hopefully, this is the correct mailing list for installation problems :).
