Upgrade to texlive on FC8 gives 2500 ambiguous font warnings
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:26:01 EDT
Description of problem: I just upgraded from tetex to texlive on Fedora 8, and
I still get the 2500 ambiguous font warnings when using pdftex. This makes Kile
and texmaker extremely slow to use. I added the texlive repo, then did a yum
update. It seems this issue was resolved, but not for me!
The warnings all look like:
pdfTeX warning: pdflatex (file /var/lib/texmf/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.ma
p): ambiguous entry for `tosl7': font file present but not included, will be tr
eated as font file not present
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
How reproducible: I then removed all texlive packages and reinstalled. The
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Follow upgrade instructions for texlive (add repo, yum update) with FC8 and
2. Compile a tex document with pdftex
Actual results: Compiles the tex document, but generates 2500 ambiguous font
Expected results: Compiles the tex document cleanly without warnings
Additional info: Trying to roll back to tetex also didn't work, as there were
three dependencies that could not be resolved.
This is fixed in rawhide and I'm also uploading new F8 rpms to the texlive
The problem was invalid references to cm-super fonts that are not packaged in
the texlive rpms.
