You need:


# pip install sphinx==1.5.5

Our documentation processing has been tested to run with:


Doxygen version 1.8.10 (and 1.8.11)

Sphinx version 1.4.4 (but not with 1.5.1)

Breathe version 4.4.0

docutils version 0.12 (0.13 has issues with Sphinx 1.4.4)


If you do the default install of these tools you’ll likely end up using Sphinx 1.6.1 and docutils 0.13.1 and there are known issues with that working with doxygen and breathe (used to generate the API documentation from the sources.)  For now, please downgrade to the specific versions listed above.


The documentation build setup is described in doc/README.rst (or to read the rendered version)

I'm getting a strange build error when I try to build documentation in the Zephyr master branch. Has anyone ever seen this before? This is an up-to-date Fedora 25 machine.


apboie@apboie-mobl1:/projects/zephyr/doc master /projects/zephyr

$ make htmldocs

doxygen zephyr.doxyfile


srctree=../ SRCARCH=x86 python scripts/genrest/ ../Kconfig reference/kconfig/

../Kconfig.zephyr:11: warning: The symbol KERNELVERSION references the non-existent environment variable KERNELVERSION and will get the empty string as its value. If you're using Kconfiglib via 'make (i)scriptconfig', it should have set up the environment correctly for you. If you still got this message, that might be an error, and you should email ulfalizer a.t Google's email service.

sphinx-build -t development -b html -d _build/doctrees  -q . _build/html

The full traceback has been saved in /tmp/sphinx-err-ybwcan.log, if you want to report the issue to the developers.

Please also report this if it was a user error, so that a better error message can be provided next time.

A bug report can be filed in the tracker at <>. Thanks!
