If I do make doc-clean && make doc and then for example sage --docbuild tutorial html, first it successfully builds the html tutorial, but then it fails because it tries to build the PDF documentation. I also don't know where it is building the PDF docs, because local/share/docs/sage/latex does not exist.

and then it tries to build math.dvi half a dozen times more, failing each time.

I think these failures are actually coming from building images for formulas.

comment:2 Changed 7 months ago by mkoeppe

Looks like I broke this in #31356 by removing the setting of SAGE_DOC_MATHJAX from src/bin/sage-env.

  • Priority changed from major to blocker

comment:4 Changed 7 months ago by mkoeppe

As non-mathjax builds are clearly broken, how about we just remove this whole setting?

comment:8 Changed 7 months ago by jhpalmieri

Good diagnosis, this fixes the problem for me. Should there be a deprecation warning for the --mathjax/-j option for docbuilding so that we can eventually delete it?

comment:9 Changed 7 months ago by mkoeppe

I don't think there's a need to deprecate it. At some point we may want to explore using instead of mathjax, and then command line options of this type will be needed again

comment:10 follow-up: Changed 7 months ago by egourgoulhon

Thanks for dealing with this. Actually, I was about to post a message on sage-devel for I noticed two days ago that sage -docbuild reference/manifolds html fails with

OSError: WARNING: display latex 'K=\\RR': latex exited with erro

while sage -docbuild reference/manifolds pdf succeeds, as well as make in generating the html doc. For the moment I cannot pull the ticket branch (*), but as soon as I can do it, I'll test the fix.

(*) the command git pull trac u/mkoeppe/_sage___docbuild_doc_html__is_broken hangs. Could this be an issue with trac.sagemath.doc this morning?

The trac server finally responded (after ~ 10 minutes!) and I confirm that this ticket fixes the issue with sage -docbuild ... html.
