initex and virtex symlinks missing in tetex package
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:07:43 EDT
Description of problem:
Both /usr/bin/initex and /usr/bin/virtex symlinks are missing from
the tetex package in FC4, so TeX formats cannot be recreated.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. install tetex-3.0-4
2. run initex plain.ini
initex is not found.
plain.fmt should be created.
tetex package in FC3 has these symlinks.
The initex and virtex names have been removed from web2c by upstream in
teTeX-3.0. Possible solution to this is to create a virtex -> tex symlink or
better to use pdftex -ini.
