Description Aleksey Nogin 1999-02-08 05:43:22 UTC
/usr/share/texmf/xdvi/XDvi has the line
XDvi*paper: a4

It should be changes to
XDvi*paper: us
(at least for the US version of RedHat).

Comment 1 Aleksey Nogin 1999-02-08 05:45:59 UTC
BTW, bug report #492 states that this problem (wrong default paper
size) was fixed for dvips, but does not say if it was fixed for xdvi.

I have verified this to be as ws reported and is being passed on to a
developer for further review.

Comment 3 Mike Maher 1999-03-15 17:03:59 UTC
This change request has been made.  No other files appear to have
a4 paper sizes included in the config files.
