Comment 1 Jason Tibbitts 2008-01-03 21:30:16 EST
Did some debugging and found that this is due to the latex2html %post scriptlet
somehow failing to call texhash in such a way that html.sty becomes visible to
the rest of the tex system.

Install latex2html, note that /usr/share/texmf/ls-R doesn't include the newly
installed "html" directory.

# /usr/bin/env - /usr/bin/texhash
texhash: Skipping /etc/texmf
texhash: Skipping /usr/local/share/texmf
texhash: Skipping /usr/share/texmf
texhash: Skipping /var/lib/texmf
texhash: Done.

But a plain call to /usr/bin/texhash works:

# texhash
texhash: Updating /etc/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /usr/share/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Updating /var/lib/texmf/ls-R...
texhash: Done.

and latex bacula.tex works.
Comment 2 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-06 07:24:50 EST
I see that e.g. jadetex has a comment about 
"used texconfig-sys rehash instead of texhash" and the change was...

-/usr/bin/env - PATH=$PATH:%{TeXdir}/bin texhash > /dev/null 2>&1
+[ -x %{_bindir}/texconfig-sys ] && %{_bindir}/texconfig-sys rehash 2> /dev/null
|| :

+[ -x %{_bindir}/texconfig-sys ] && %{_bindir}/texconfig-sys rehash 2> /dev/null
|| :

Maybe this should be reassigned to latex2html then ?
Comment 3 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-06 10:16:28 EST
I'd check this in an give it a whirl except I'm not in the ACL for latex2html
Comment 4 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-07 06:47:57 EST
Hmm, with the new build of latex2html now in rawhide: 


bacula gets further, but fails later on:

Making developers pdfm
dvipdfm -p a4 developers.dvi
make[1]: execvp: dvipdfm: Permission denied
make[1]: *** [dvipdf] Error 127

full log at:


seems like dvipdfm may not have executable permissions.
Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2008-01-08 04:25:57 EST
Strange, dvipdfm has correct executable permissions so execvp shouldn't fail here.
Comment 6 Caolan McNamara 2008-01-08 04:37:50 EST
spot has apparently now rebuilt bacula, the saga is over methinks:
Comment 7 Alex Lancaster 2008-01-08 05:11:02 EST
Yep, the last problem was a missing "BuildRequires: dvipdfm", seems like dvipdfm
is now a separate subpackage in texlive, whereas before it was part of the main
tetex package.
