Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 448647
Need to add "Requires: dvipdfm" for F-9+
Last modified: 2008-09-11 13:17:52 EDT
With the change to TexLive, many of the packages that were part of the old
tetex, are now separate packages.
It appears that dvipdfm is now a separate package and if it is not installed
then the dvi -> PDF generation method (which does appear by default in the Lyx
menu) using the dvipdfm option fails with an error message.
To fix this, the lyx package should have a "Requires: dvipdfm" added for F-9 and
Ping? This should be a fairly simple fix.
Added to rawhide, and lyx-1.5.6-2 build (coming soon to updates).
