docs: update recommended Sphinx version to 2.4.4
There are some docs that have nested tables. While this was always part of the spec, only Sphinx version 2.4.x can translate it to LaTeX. In other words, if someone is using a Sphinx version < 2.4, the LaTeX and PDF output won't work for some of the docs. So, it seems that it is time to raise the bar again for the recommented version. The Sphinx check script is already smart enough to keep working, with older versions, warning the users that an upgrade is recommended (and explaining how): Sphinx version 1.7.9 Warning: It is recommended at least Sphinx version 2.4.4. Detected OS: Fedora release 31 (Thirty One). To upgrade Sphinx, use: /usr/bin/virtualenv sphinx_2.4.4 . sphinx_2.4.4/bin/activate pip install -r ./Documentation/sphinx/requirements.txt Signed-off-by: Mauro Carvalho Chehab <> Link: Signed-off-by: Jonathan Corbet <>
