    emerge system

    It seems i'm having some problems with running emerge system and i have no clue why It's currently trying to emerge iputils.

    It doesn't happen until it tries to change the iputils documentation sgml files into html files. At this point jw complains with "No parser available". I googled this, and couldn't find any reference to it what-so-ever. I checked that jw has all the necessary frontends and backends (html and docbook) and it does. I have no idea what to check for next.

    I'm completely stumped, and any help anyone could give would be much appreciated.

    Here is the stdout and stderr from the attempt to emerge:

    Usually when that happens, I just cd into whatever directory the ebuild is in and emerge the previous stable release.

    I received this error today also. I got around it by setting USE="-doc" for this package, then re-running the original merge.
