Description Jan Lieskovsky 2010-04-23 11:27:24 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #585177 +++

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 4.

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/share/texmf/doc/amstex/amsguide.dvi /tmp
2. Run "dvihp" on it
Actual results:

dvihp -v -o amsguide.pcl amsguide.dvi 
Running dvicopy amsguide.dvi >/dvihp.l12007/dvi12006.vf
This is DVIcopy, Version 1.5 (Web2C 7.4.5)

Comment 1 Ondrej Vasik 2011-02-18 12:59:32 UTC
Thanks for report, but we will not be able to address the issue in RHEL-4.
RHEL-4.9 was the last RHEL-4 regular update. As RHEL-4 now targets only
critical and security fixes, closing this bugzilla WONTFIX.
