Description mohamed 2008-06-25 16:58:32 EDT

i really like fedora and the reason why i continue to use it is because it has
excellent java support and it's pretty modern but the no of packages available
for texlive can't compare to ubuntu's.  fedora should have  *alteast*
texlive-fonts-extra (http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/texlive-fonts-extra) and
context-nonfree (http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/context-nonfree), I'm sure
you know how difficult it is to install fonts on tex/latex.  An added bonus
would be context-doc-nonfree
(http://packages.ubuntu.com/hardy/context-doc-nonfree) ;)

package avaiable on ubuntu;


thanks for your time

The nonfree packages cannot go into fedora. The could go in third party
repository, like rpmfusion, Axel repo, Dag/Dries repos.

As for the texlive extras, I am not sure wether these packages should 
be in texlive or in a big texlive addons package or packaged separately.
Any idea?

You can use the TeX Live 2009 packages from my repository before they are included. They contain a complete TeX Live distribution. For more information please see:
