Description of problem:
When selecting "PDF" from the export menu, lyx fails to create a PDF and becomes unresponsive.
export to pdf works on x86, seems to be a ppc specific issue.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. launch lyx
2. create a file
3. attempt to export to pdf
Actual Results: no pdf, lyx becimes unresponsive
Expected Results: either a pdf file, or an error message telling me why a pdf could not be created
export to latex does work
AFACT, export to pdf is simply an external call to pdflatex. You sure pdflatex
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.
