Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-04-23 11:18:36 UTC
Description of problem:
The TeX's dviljk binary translates the given typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file -- DVIFILE to Hewlett-Packard Printer Command
Language (PCL) by calling dvicopy, and then dvilj* (dvilj4 by default).

But the required /usr/bin/dvilj4 binary is missing in tetex 
package, as shipped with Red Hat Enterprise Linux 3.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to translate some DVI file into Hewlett-Packard's PCL:
cp /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES/testpage.dvi /tmp/testpage.dvi
2. Run "dvihp" on it
Actual results:

dvihp -v -o testpage.pcl testpage.dvi 
Running dvicopy testpage.dvi >/tmp/dvihp.H15198/dvi15197.vf
This is DVIcopy, Version 1.5 (Web2C 7.3.1)

This is not going to be fixed in RHEL-3, closing WONTFIX.
