Description ard 1999-05-15 12:12:45 UTC
When upgrading from 5.2 to 6.0, all (la)tex packages are
marked as installed, but instead of being installed, only
emptyness is found... :(
So when upgraded run the following:
rpm --verify -a
to check everything for consistency.
I personally did not bother to do much about it. I just rpm
-e the tex bunch, and rpm -i the whole bunch again.
It only appears to behave like that with latex
(witnissed to 5.2 version -> 6.0, exactly the same results)
