Er, yes.  Me. :)

The Linux Foundation is paying me to focus on documentation for a while.  
(Woot!)  I just got http://kernel.org/doc up a few days ago (it needs lots 
more work), and I'm pondering setting up a git repository if my queue of 
patches to move files around in Documentation gets too long.  I'm also slowly 
reading through the "make htmldocs" output, beating on doclifter, writing new 
documentation...

What do you need? :)

How do I split up a PDF?

I'm trying to split the OLS PDF volumes into individual papers so I can index 
them into http://kernel.org/doc but the only tool I've found for this so far 
is pdftk and the version in Kubuntu 7.04 doesn't work.

No matter what the input file is, pdftk says "Done.  Input errors, so no 
output created."  With no explanation.  I tried strace and it does about 
700,000 one byte reads (ouch) and then prints that out without making a 
single additional syscall.  (It seems to have read the whole file fine, 
though.  One byte at a time...)

I also tried "print to pdf" from Konqueror with a page range.  This produced 
PDFs larger than the original (presumably bitmap versions of everything) and 
of course this being Konqueror the result was misaligned (the top quarter of 
each page was off the top of the screen).

Can somebody recommend a tool for splitting up an existing PDF file?

More info: popler-utils can convert to HTML, but the result is 
near-unreadable.

pdfjam focuses entirely join joining pdfs, not splitting them up.
