Description frankie 2002-03-27 11:39:11 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.78 [es] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.17 i686)

Description of problem:
When I run db2pdf it fails to find the file pdfjadetex.fmt.
I found out this file is from the package jadetex and it's supposed to be
in the postinstall script. It's not there and it's not created when I run the
from the script manually.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I also tried jadetex-3.12-2.noarch.rpm from rawhide but it's worse.

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install jadetex
2. ls -ld /usr/share/texmf/web2c/pdfjadetex.fmt

Actual Results:  file not found

Expected Results:  the file should be there

Additional info:

I upgraded all the tetex packages to 1.0.7-38.2.
Here is an extract of the output of the postinstall script.
It looks like a problem about pzdr.

# /usr/bin/env - PATH=$PATH:/usr/bin fmtutil --cnffile
/usr/share/texmf/tex/jadetex/jadefmtutil.cnf --all

(/usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/psnfss/upzd.fd)kpathsea: Running mktextfm  pzdr
mktextfm: Running mf \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pzdr
This is METAFONT, Version 2.7182 (Web2C 7.3.1)

kpathsea: Running mktexmf  pzdr
! I can't find file `pzdr'.
<*> \mode:=ljfour; mag:=1; nonstopmode; input pzdr
Please type another input file name

What is your TEXINPUTS environment variable set to?

Comment 2 frankie 2002-04-02 10:38:08 UTC
I have no such variable in my environment. I also run the postinstall and then I
the env.

Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-04-02 10:43:59 UTC
Please list all tetex packages you have (rpm -qa | grep ^tetex).  Thanks.
