 yamagata 2001-04-25 06:12:17 UTC From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/4.77 [ja/[Vine,RedHat]] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686) When dvips converts a TeX DVI file including Japanese, core dumped. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.The file, foo.tex includes Japanese text. 2.platex foo.tex 3.dvips -o foo.ps foo.dvi Actual Results: dvips: Font rml not found, using cmr10 instead. Segmentation fault(core dumped) rml must be defined in the file, /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/psfonts.map.  Tim Waugh 2001-05-02 09:48:55 UTC Please attach the file you are using so that I can test out a fix. Thanks.  yamagata 2001-05-07 05:45:29 UTC Please see the patch file, teTeX-1.0-japanese-psfonts.patch, in tetex-1.0.7-15.src.rpm.  Tim Waugh 2001-05-07 17:33:05 UTC What about it? It is already applied. Please attach a tex file that I can use to reproduce the problem locally.  yamagata 2001-05-08 01:46:03 UTC The file, psfonts.map, does not include lines of japanese.map. If we add the lines to psfonts.map, dvips works. \documentstyle{jarticle} \begin{document} Japanese F|K\8l \end{document}  yamagata 2001-05-08 09:32:11 UTC If we run the command, /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/updmap, the file, psfonts.map, is updated and the lines of the file, japanese.man, are included.  Tim Waugh 2001-05-08 12:02:29 UTC Please use the 'create a new attachment' link to attach the file you are using, since I can't reproduce the problem with that above fragment. I'd like to test a fixed package. Thanks.  yamagata 2001-05-09 00:31:55 UTC Created attachment 17806 [details] LaTeX file including japanese text  Tim Waugh 2001-05-18 13:30:23 UTC This should be fixed in 1.0.7-17. Thanks!  Tim Waugh 2001-05-25 12:55:15 UTC Please confirm whether 1.0.7-17 makes things better or worse.  Tim Waugh 2001-05-25 20:30:18 UTC 1.0.7-19 has reverted the change that caused updmap to be run during the build stage. I'm going to close this bug as WORKSFORME since I can't reproduce the original problem you were having. If you have more information you can tell me, please reopen this bug report. Thanks.  Rex Dieter 2001-06-20 17:33:32 UTC I still consider this a bug, and the "fix" in 1.0.7-19 only masks the real problem. In my case, I would like to use type1 fonts in preference of metafont, so I edit the appropriate section of /usr/share/texmf/dvips/config/updmap to say: ########################################################################### # Set to true to use postscript type1 versions for fonts with existing # metafont versions. ########################################################################### # type1_default=false type1_default=true and rerun updmap. I now have a non-functioning dvips. tetex-1.0.7-14 (as distributed with rh7.1) did not have this problem. Undoing the following patch (which supposedly fixes bug 32134, though bugzilla won't let me see it) in the SRPM fixes this: teTeX-1.0-japanese-psfonts-fix.patch IMO, The long-term fix should involve being able to fix japanese fonts in a way that doesn't break other things (like dvips).  Tim Waugh 2001-06-20 17:39:44 UTC The trouble is that if you undo that patch, pdftex complains because those psfonts.map don't have enough words on the line any more. :-( Yes, the correct solution would involve a psfonts.map that you could run updmap on and still have everything work. I don't know what the correct solution is though at this point. I _am_ deeply suspicious of the teTeX-1.0-japanese-psfonts-fix.patch patch, but I don't know what it should look like instead.  Rex Dieter 2001-06-20 22:57:49 UTC I rebuild tetex without the jap-psfonts-fix.patch and all my problems are gone: dvips works, updmap works, pdflatex works, pdftex works ok except for a few warnings: Warning: pdftex (file pdftex.map): invalid line in map file: gbm GothicBBB-Med ium-H^^J' Warning: pdftex (file pdftex.map): invalid line in map file: gbmv GothicBBB-Me dium-V^^J' Warning: pdftex (file pdftex.map): invalid line in map file: rml Ryumin-Light- H^^J' Warning: pdftex (file pdftex.map): invalid line in map file: rmlv Ryumin-Light -V^^J' (Is this what you were talking about?) Otherwise, I'm still of the opinion that the jap-psfonts-fix.patch in question is broke and should not be included. Of course, until a better patch comes along, it's your call to decide which bug is more important to fix: this one or bug #32134.  Tim Waugh 2001-08-07 17:24:40 UTC This should be fixed by 1.0.7-27. We have two dvips binaries now: dvips (normal) and pdvips (ptex-enabled).
