Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

I have prepared new packages of texlive in anticipation of the imminent release of TL 2008, which will coincide with the replacement of tetex by texlive in [extra]. Since TL is a big beast to package and test, I need your help!

The packages are available for i686 and x86_64 in a temporary repository. Add this to pacman.conf

[texlive]
Server = http://dev.archlinux.org/~francois/texlive/os/i686 #or x86_64

And then please read http://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/TeXLive_2008 carefully.

Thanks in advance,

F

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

I replaced your TexLive2007 packages from community with that packages.
I can't see any regression here at the moment. Everything works... smile

I will use this packages now.

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

it might be good idea to write on wiki that there are packages with same names in community, it's 4am here and I didn't noticed it at first and was trying to install 2007 version with texlive-bin-svn from 2008, it couldn't work that way of course...

anyway - there might be some troubles with xindy - hardcoded paths in package?

[giniu@ginland ~]$ xindy
xindy: Cannot locate /mnt/data/abslocal/texlive-svn/texlive-bin-svn/pkg/usr/lib/xindy.run at /usr/bin/xindy line 317.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/xindy line 340.

I thought this was obvious smile
OK, I'll add that info.

anyway - there might be some troubles with xindy - hardcoded paths in package?

[giniu@ginland ~]$ xindy
xindy: Cannot locate /mnt/data/abslocal/texlive-svn/texlive-bin-svn/pkg/usr/lib/xindy.run at /usr/bin/xindy line 317.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/xindy line 340.
[giniu@ginland ~]$

Indeed! Thanks for telling me (I didn't notice of course since the hard-coded path is present on my machine).
Arg! that xindy is a pain to package...

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

Have a look at my xindy-svn package in AUR.

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

I was not aware of those, sorry! But since xindy is now officially distributed with TeXLive, it will be integrated in texlive-bin for the benefit of everyone. BTW the problem raised above has been fixed and an updated version of texlive-bin-svn is available in my texlive repo.

Stefan: since you are a poweruser of TeX & Co, I would appreciate if you could take a few minutes to test my new packages of TL2008 smile

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

Hi,
I have tested the basic functionality (bibtex and latex) along with some custom style files and things look good.
Cheers,

Thanks for this.

I could either leave it as it is and add t1utils to the conflicts and provides arrays, or just rebuild with the option --without-t1utils

I'll probably go for the latter option.

This should not have happened but I just found the source of the problem: this morning I have repackaged texlive-bin-svn with makepkg -R after I had corrected a problem in the xindy perl script. However in the process the file texmf.cnf got replaced by the default one from upstream, which makes the whole system more or less unusable. Sorry. I'll fix this ASAP!

Yes I know about this: I decided not to provide omega in texlive-bin-svn (for the reasons see the wiki). But I forgot to add it to the conflicts array...

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

I have updated texlive-bin-svn.
I hope this fixes the above issues.
(But I realized too late that I did not add texlive-omega-svn to the conflicts array.... Next time).

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

@Firmicus: After the upgrade to the new packages from 2 min ago a "pacman -S t1utils" works without a file conflict

@Stefan Husmann: I can do a "pacman -S texinfo" after the upgrade with the new packages. Info: I test this all at the moment only in a kvm session with an installation of texlive-most-svn but i don't think this should be a difference to you.

Attila, you are right. That is strange. After another pacman -S texlive-most the message vanishes.

I have problems with a pdflatex run. I use lmodern fonts and T1 font-encoding, together with \usepackage[microtype} for font expansion. lmodern fonts are scalable, so I do not really understand this complaints.

!  ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

If I delete microtype from the preamble, I get

kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode / --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600 --dpi 600 ts1-lmr12
mktexpk: don't know how to create bitmap font for ts1-lmr12.
kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
 )
!pdfTeX error: pdflatex (file ts1-lmr12): Font ts1-lmr12 at 600 not found
 ==> Fatal error occurred, no output PDF file produced!

so he still trys to create a bitmap font where he should not.

The weird thing is: I deleted  /usr/share/texmf-var/fonts/map/pdftex/updmap/pdftex.map and everything worked fine in the first case.

@Firmicus: I do a "locate pdftex.map" in my old installation and see that there be 2 files in /opt/texlive (texmf and texmf-var). Ist this the same for the new texlive? It looks a little bit strange that deleting a file solves the problem.

This *.map and the places where they get stored be even like voodoo for me. smile

To be honest I do not really understand this too, but it was an issue in Texlive 2007 too. And it seems only pdftex.map is affected that way. See http://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=50016

btw text was from an interview with german actress Alexandra Maria Lara, so she tried to quit. Without luck, i think.

I noticed that myself yesterday one minute after I had updated the repo, and fixed it ca. half an hour later. This is the reason why Attila had no problem smile

Re: Testers needed for new TeXLive packages!

I'll have a look at the issue with the pdftex.map (which is also strange to me).
At first sight I would say this is an upstream issue (my packages aim to be as vanilla as possible wink) but who knows.

The pdftex.map that counts is in $TEXMFVAR and is created by updmap from $TEXMFCONFIG/web2c/updmap.cfg. The other one is from upstream and just there for reference.
So maybe something with the lm fonts is set incorrectly in updmap.cfg? Stay tuned.

I have problems with a pdflatex run. I use lmodern fonts and T1 font-encoding, together with \usepackage[microtype} for font expansion. lmodern fonts are scalable, so I do not really understand this complaints.

@Stefan: please send me you test file over email. I'd like to debug this.

BTW the problem raised above has been fixed and an updated version of texlive-bin-svn is available in my texlive repo.

hmm... if this was about xindy problem I think it's still here just with other path...:

[giniu@ginland ~]$ pacman -Qs xindy
[giniu@ginland ~]$ pacman -Qo /usr/bin/xindy 
/usr/bin/xindy jest własnością texlive-bin-svn 9872-1
[giniu@ginland ~]$ xindy
xindy: Cannot locate /var/abs/local/texlive-svn/texlive-bin-svn/pkg/usr/lib/xindy.run at /usr/bin/xindy line 317.
BEGIN failed--compilation aborted at /usr/bin/xindy line 340.
[giniu@ginland ~]$

the 9872 is latest, right? Anyway - something changed... /mnt/data/abslocal/texlive-svn/texlive-bin-svn/pkg/usr/lib/xindy.run to /var/abs/local/texlive-svn/texlive-bin-svn/pkg/usr/lib/xindy.run

cheers,
Andrzej.

@Andrzej: Dzień Dobry
This only occurs on i686. Stupid mistake: the hard-coded path was different under my i868 chroot. I fixed it in the PKGBUILD, but in the meanwhile it should work if you run
XINDY_LIBDIR=/usr/lib/xindy xindy
