These files are created by the %post scriptlet

rpm --scripts xmltex
Comment 2 Jamie Guinan 2002-07-19 15:19:45 EDT
Ok, then it looks like the %post scriptlet isn't working.

If I run the commands indicated by "rpm --scripts xmltex" by hand
(as root), the second one fails with,

This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-14h-released-20010417 (Web2C (INITEX)
(Fatal format file error; I'm stymied)
fmtutil: `pdftex -ini -fmt=pdfxmltex -progname=pdfxmltex &pdflatex
pdfxmltex.ini' failed.

and the missing files are still not created.

I don't understand the workings of tetex well enough to
know what/where the source of the problem is.
Comment 3 Tim Waugh 2002-07-22 16:50:18 EDT
Was this an upgrade?  There was an anaconda bug that caused many packages not 
to be upgraded.  You might need to upgrade tetex* by hand.
Comment 4 Jamie Guinan 2002-07-23 01:43:01 EDT
Yes it was an upgrade from 7.2, and indeed some of the RPMs were
not updated.  Updating them fixed my problems.  Thank you!
