 ed leaver 2013-07-18 08:20:48 EDT Description of problem: In FC19 /usr/bin/t4ht is symlinked to /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/scripts/tex4ht/ht.sh, which is a very short bash script that in turn executes... t4ht (relative path). Fork then runs out of processes. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: I have a script that runs "mk4ht mzlatex ". mk4ht apparently calls t4ht. Fails every time. Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3. Actual results: Expected results: Additional info: I temporarily "fixed" the problem by removing the symlink to /usr/share/texlive/texmf-dist/scripts/tex4ht/ht.sh and copying the /usr/bin/t4ht executable from an FC18 install into FC19's /usr/bin. Seems to work fine. ivolopez 2013-07-19 11:33:44 EDT Even a very simple example ends with error messages. Example: - Tex file foo.tex: \documentclass{article} \begin{document} Hello world \end{document} - Script call: htlatex foo.tex The htlatex script calls t4ht and it fails. The temporary "fix" have solved my problem. Michael S. Tsirkin 2013-11-18 11:00:46 EST I think component is wrong here. This is part of texlive. Michael S.

Tsirkin 2013-11-25 10:27:13 EST For now I just got a working t4ht binary e.g. from http://pkgs.fedoraproject.org/repo/pkgs/tetex-tex4ht/tex4ht-1.0.2008_02_28_2058.tar.gz/dc9d78c8ad22acd4b40dfd2cbbe2b8de/tex4ht-1.0.2008_02_28_2058.tar.gz and put it in /usr/bin Fedora End Of Life 2015-01-09 13:59:14 EST This message is a notice that Fedora 19 is now at end of life. Fedora has stopped maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 19. It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version' of '19'. Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' to a later Fedora version. Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not able to fix it before Fedora 19 is end of life. If you would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above. Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes bugs or makes them obsolete. Fedora End Of Life 2015-02-17 11:13:57 EST Fedora 19 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-01-06. Fedora 19 is no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug. If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this bug. Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
