I made a test package of tetex-2.0.1.

It is available at

This package is not fully tested, so some problems maybe include.

Comment 5 Aleksey Nogin 2003-03-08 21:19:44 UTC
2.0.2 is already available.

RH8 RPMS for tetex 2.0.2 at http://atrpms.physik.fu-berlin.de/dist/rh80/tetex/.

Comment 8 Tim Waugh 2003-03-12 09:29:39 UTC
With Japanese support, and all the other things that our teTeX package has?

Comment 9 Jack Tanner 2003-03-14 23:16:32 UTC
I don't know about the Japanese support or "the other things" that RedHat adds.
I'm a meat-and-potatoes English-speaking user. I want the latest-and-greatest
LaTeX+style files+xdvi. What does RedHat add, actually? And if what it adds is
so special, why haven't these things been fed upstream?
