Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 575
Latex completely broken in RH5.2?
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:48 EDT
I was running RedHat 4.x, and just upgraded to 5.2. I can't
run Latex against any of my documents. I get the error..
! LaTeX Error: File `article.cls' not found.
Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: cls)
If I make a letter document instead I get a similar error
except it says 'letter.cls' not found.
As far as I can tell, Latex doesn't work at all in this
release. I have tried re-installing all the tex packages as
My document starts off with....
This sounds like a configuration problem. Conventions for
storing some fonts and TeX support files have changed between
the earlier 0.4 and the cureent 0.9 release of teTeX.
Please reopen this bug with more complete information if the guess
above is incorrect.
I found I could fix the problem with a BIG environment variable...
However, I wouldn't think I should need to put the bog standard tex
and latex files in this environment variable. I thought TEX should be
able to find the standard stuff automatically. Could it be that after
you moving the standard locations of TEX files, tex can no longer find
the default locations? Make a small latex file and see if it works.
This problem has been fixed and tested for the next release.
