latex not working after texlive update

hi!
I've just updated the texlive package but now latex does not work.
From the log, all I can see is that it does not find the file ruhyphen.tex.
I've got both the texlive-most and texlive-lang groups installed.

any help?

Re: latex not working after texlive update

if an update breaks another package there is normally one solution to your problem. Re-build the broken package against the new dependency package that upgraded. You can do that with abs/makepkg.

Re: latex not working after texlive update

Same here, but I didn't updated texlive. I removed the old installation before as suggested in the news.

Re: latex not working after texlive update

I also removed the old installation and installed back the new packages.

Re: latex not working after texlive update

I have the same problem and I think that the culprit is

  extra/texlive-core 2008.10548-1

This version of texlive-core is, I think, missing some files. In particular it misses:

texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/catkoi.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryoal.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryoas.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryoct.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryodv.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryomg.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryovl.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/cyryozn.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/enrhm2.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/hypht2.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/koi2koi.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/koi2lcy.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/koi2ot2.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/koi2t2a.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/koi2ucy.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruenhyph.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphal.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphas.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphct.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphdv.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphen.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphmg.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphvl.tex
texlive-core /usr/share/texmf-dist/tex/generic/ruhyphen/ruhyphzn.tex

Hence,
   pdftex -ini  -jobname=latex -progname=latex -translate-file=cp227.tcx latex.ini
fails with the message:
  ! I can't find file `ruhyphen.tex'.
   l.27     \input ruhyphen.tex

The version
  extra/texlive-core 2008.10429-1

used to contain these files, and it was working.

I have the same problem and tried your solution, but makepkg can't download the sources from here:
http://dev.archlinux.org/~francois/texl … re-src.zip

What now?

Re: latex not working after texlive update

Barghest posted about this in the main texlive thread:

http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=52260&p=4

I cross linked this thread to that one so Firmicus can get a better idea of what's happening.

Re: latex not working after texlive update

Geez, this was definitely fixed BEFORE the initial release in extra, but yesterday while fixing another problem I unfortunately reintroduced it. Sorry!!

A workaround for now is to edit /usr/share/texmf-config/tex/generic/config/language.dat and comment out the two lines beginning with "russian" and "ukrainian". Then rebuild the formats with

sudo fmtutil-sys --all

Or wait for a few hours till I upload a fixed version.

NB: When upgrading to texlive-core 2008.10548-2 the install scriptlet will NOT rebuild the formats automatically. You'll have to do it manually as indicated above (but this time the russian and ukrainian hyphenation patterns will be found).
BTW, by default texlive enables hyphenation patterns for all available languages. You can disable those you are certain never to use by commenting out their entries in the file language.dat.

Re: latex not working after texlive update

I tried your solution Firmicus, and also updated my package. But whenever I issue the command 'tex somefile.tex' it throws the error 'Undefined control sequence' at me.
I don't have any typing errors in my file, even with the most basic file I'm still getting this error. Am I overlooking a simple thing?

Btw, I'm quite new to LaTeX wink

Thanks in advance.

tex is not latex. Maybe your input file is latex? If so, run

latex somefile

or

pdflatex somefile
