Subject: Can't open perl script "/usr/share/doc/vtk-doc/html//"
Date: Mon, 24 Jan 2011 15:02:17 +0100
Package: vtk-doc
Version: 5.4.2-8
Severity: normal


  Since vtk 5.4, the vtk-doc package does not include the perl script anymore. This is needed to build documentation of extension of vtk (eg. paraview, gdcm or kwwidgets).

See an old thread:

Right now gdcm fails to build the vtk documentation:
