Patch to "mapping" file that fixes the issue.
Comment 2 Tomas Mraz 2005-02-24 10:16:44 EST
This blocks correct rebuild of pam in RAWHIDE.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2005-02-24 10:36:35 EST
This fix is incomplete.  \ifpdf is used elsewhere in that file.
Comment 4 Tim Waugh 2005-02-24 10:39:05 EST
I've checked in a more complete fix -- please try 0.9.21-2.
Comment 5 Jindrich Novy 2005-02-24 11:06:43 EST
Tim, I just noticed that when testing it on pam. I've done a more complete fix.
I'll attach it also here.

Comment 7 Tim Waugh 2005-02-24 11:37:37 EST
Applied and built as 0.9.21-3.
Comment 8 Tomas Mraz 2005-02-24 12:27:55 EST
This is not right. The \ifx\pdfoutput\defined doesn't test for definition of
\pdfoutput, it's actually exactly the same as \ifx\pdfoutput\undefined. You've
just simply inverted the if condition and thus it will not generate pdf output
correctly. It will generate it but the conditions will not be evaluated as true
so the output will be different.

Better patch

This patch will work with both old and new tetex versions.
Comment 10 Tim Waugh 2005-02-24 12:46:43 EST
Thanks.  Okay, built as 0.9.21-4.
Comment 11 Radek Vokal 2005-02-25 04:23:09 EST
Fixes my problem with iproute build. Thanks
Comment 12 Jindrich Novy 2005-06-03 02:50:53 EDT
Tim, this problem is well known in upstream as well an they suggest the
following solution to this issue:

  <not running PDFTeX>
    <not running PDFTeX>
    <running PDFTeX, with...>
      <...PDF output>
      <...DVI output>
