Description Zack Cerza 2009-09-09 21:13:26 UTC
Description of problem:
If texlive-{dvips,latex} are not installed, epydoc --pdf will fail with: 

"  Error: latex failed: [Errno 2] No such file or directory"

even if --debug is passed. After looking through the code for a bit, I found out that it was trying to call makeindex, latex and dvips. None of those were present on my system.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
epydoc-3.0.1-4.fc11.noarch

Comment 1 Matthias Saou 2009-12-08 19:57:14 UTC
Indeed, you are right. This seems like the right thing to do, too bad adding those requirements will pull in the huge texlive-texmf-fonts package even for those who won't need it.
