What version of Zope and ZWiki are you using? The instructions
above assume 0.35 of both.

Bob McElrath's repository:

    darcs get

is no longer at version 0.35 and may not be compatible with more
recent versions of ZWiki. For the instructions to work I think
you would need to download these specific versions.

I think the repository is based on the compatible 0.35 versions
of ZWiki and LatexWiki together with the changes that I made for
MathAction, so your procedure is reasonable but you will not be
able to take advantage of improvements to ZWiki and LatexWiki
that were made in later versions by the developers of these
products. (At the moment, neither can MathAction :(

On the other hand, if you start with later compatible version
of both of these packages at least the LatexWiki functionality
should work, but merging in the changes for MathAction will
be more complicated then just overwriting the files specified
in the instructions. It would be better to diff the files and
make changes more carefully.

Could you describe the problem with pamphlet files?
  To be more precise these are my steps in the Doyen CD:



  tar -xzf LocalFS-1.3-andreas.tar.gz -C

  tar -xzf latexwiki.tar.gz -C /usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Products/

I think you meant: doyenLatexWiki.tar.gz above?

I don't like the location where you install these products.
Newer versions of Zope usually recommend that you install
products in the "instance" directory rather than the global
Products directory. The instance directory is created when
you run '' as part of the Zope installation.
  yum -y install swig

  yum -y install gcc

  yum -y upgrade python

  yum -y install python-devel

  cd /usr/lib/zope/lib/python/Products/LatexWiki

  swig -python texbreaker.i

  gcc -fpic -c \
    texbreaker.c texbreaker_wrap.c -I/usr/include/python2.3

  ld -shared texbreaker.o texbreaker_wrap.o -o

  /etc/init.d/zope start

This should be ok.

I will try it later when I get more time.
