AFACT, export to pdf is simply an external call to pdflatex.  You sure pdflatex

Comment 2 Michael A. Peters 2005-05-29 06:08:30 UTC
I ran pdflatex on the exported .tex and that worked.
I then tried export to pdf from lyx and that worked.
Furthermore, direct export to pdf now works from any file.

Where the problem was is puzzling, repeated attempts after installing lyx had
resulted in a hung lyx, with no output at all on the command line when lyx had
been started from command line.
