(This may or may not be related to your issue...) I also noticed on the
last update I did that some/all of the packages for ?LaTex? were
updated -- and that the post-install script (post-texmf.sh) took a VERY
long time to complete --- i.e. system looked like it was hung, but was
actually ?building? a lot of postinstall stuff. This was on a slower
processor machine ~400mhz -- WAG is it took about 8-10 minutes. I kept
thinking setup was hung -- ended up cancelling it and running
post-texmf.sh by hand ( I also had to comment out line 11, kept getting
permission denied on removing ~/web2c/*.*fmt).
