Description simra 1999-05-27 04:40:33 UTC
In upgrading more than one machine to 6.0, I've found that
the essential font and class files for tetex have
disappeared- for instance:
/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/base/article.cls has gone
missing- on both of the machines on which I performed the
upgrade.

A simple fix is to uninstall the tetex-related rpms and
reinstall them, but this is an annoyance.

The problem was in rpm, not the tetex packages. Deinstalling
the tetex packages and reinstalling manually will fix the problem
