RHEL Engineering is moving the tracking of its product development work on RHEL 6 through RHEL 9 to Red Hat Jira (issues.redhat.com). If you're a Red Hat customer, please continue to file support cases via the Red Hat customer portal. If you're not, please head to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira and file new tickets here. Individual Bugzilla bugs in the statuses "NEW", "ASSIGNED", and "POST" are being migrated throughout September 2023. Bugs of Red Hat partners with an assigned Engineering Partner Manager (EPM) are migrated in late September as per pre-agreed dates. Bugs against components "kernel", "kernel-rt", and "kpatch" are only migrated if still in "NEW" or "ASSIGNED". If you cannot log in to RH Jira, please consult article #7032570. That failing, please send an e-mail to the RH Jira admins at rh-issues@redhat.com to troubleshoot your issue as a user management inquiry. The email creates a ServiceNow ticket with Red Hat. Individual Bugzilla bugs that are migrated will be moved to status "CLOSED", resolution "MIGRATED", and set with "MigratedToJIRA" in "Keywords". The link to the successor Jira issue will be found under "Links", have a little "two-footprint" icon next to it, and direct you to the "RHEL project" in Red Hat Jira (issue links are of type "https://issues.redhat.com/browse/RHEL-XXXX", where "X" is a digit). This same link will be available in a blue banner at the top of the page informing you that that bug has been migrated.

Description Oliver Freyermuth 2020-04-29 01:26:54 UTC
Description of problem:
This example test.tex file:

Hello world.
should be compiled fine after texlive (which pulls in texlive-pst-plot) is installed. 

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. "yum install texlive"
2. Run "pdflatex test.tex" (see file contents above). 

Actual results:
"! LaTeX Error: File `iftex.sty' not found."
Installing texlive-iftex and retrying yields:
"! I can't find file `pst-tools.tex'."
# yum whatprovides '*/pst-tools.tex'
reveals nothing. 

Expected results:
All dependencies are installed and it compiles. 

Additional info:
One might argue these are two bugs:
- texlive-iftex should be a dependency of texlive-pst-plot. 
- texlive-pst-tools is not packaged, and should also be a dependency of texlive-pst-plot.

It seems the pst-tools is needed. I will have a look at this and thanks for your report.
