Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 429753
kpathsea is pulling in all of texlive
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:26:01 EDT
Description of problem:
kpathsea is pulling in all of texlive, which could be a problem for the livecd,
since evince requires kpathsea. That adds roughly 100MB in rpms.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
This is the duplicate of another bug, but I cannot find
it offhand. Anyway kpathsea calls programs from texlive
and evince needs fonts from texlive and the texlive machinery
to render dvi.
The packaging modification of the baseline texlive package is in progress
already. The main ideas are to package xetex in texlive-xetex (removed
dependency on teckit-devel, dvipdfmx), packaging stuff using ghostscript and
metafont with X support in texlive-utils (removing dependendencies on X, Perl),
also we should consider Requires: mendex as it's not needed by anything in
texlive and is kept for a sole purpose of tetex compatibility. These changes
should be ready for commit during today.
