Updated: tetex 2.0.1-1

TeTeX, a TeX distribution for UNIX compatible systems, has been
updated to version 2.0.1-1.  Omega is included again.

TeTex is split up and packaged in seven parts.  Three packages for
executables and runtime libraries: tetex-bin, libkpathsea3, tetex-x11.
Three packages for the texmf tree: tetex-base, tetex-doc, and
tetex-extra.  And a development package: tetex-devel.

As tetex-base is very big (>10MB), there's an additional package:
tetex-tiny, that provides a very small (~2MB) functional texmf tree.
If you select tetex-base or tetex-tiny, that should take care of
dependencies and provide a working teTeX setup.

The executables and runtime libraries: tetex-bin and libkpathsea3, are
always required.  To get a functional TeX/LaTeX setup, you also need a
texmf tree.  You can choose from tetex-base or tetex-tiny.

NOTE: The tetex-tiny and tetex-base packages overlap.  If you choose
      for a full teTeX installation, or just install everything of
      Cygwin, both will be installed, which should be fine.  Please
      don't uninstall one of them, there should be no need to do so.
      If you do, you must reinstall the remaining other package.

After a successful installation of tetex (tetex-bin + libkpathsea3,
and one of tetex-tiny or tetex-base), you should be able to run, eg,

    latex sample2e
    dvips -o sample2e.ps sample2e

If you install XFree86 tetex-x11 and ghostscript-x11, you may even
view the output just like you would do on UNIX:

    xdvi sample2e.dvi &

If you're unlucky, read /usr/doc/tetex-bin-2.0.1-1/INSTALL or
/etc/postinstall/post-texmf.sh[.done].  If necessary, edit
/usr/share/texmf/web2c/texmf.cnf, run

    texconfig confall
    texconfig rehash
    texconfig init

and see what happens.

Please send questions or comments on teTeX to the Cygwin mailing list
at: cygwin@cygwin.com.  [However, if you're having problems related to
LilyPond, please write to lilypond-user@gnu.org.]
Please don't email the authors directly.

Enjoy,
Jan.


INSTALLATION:

To update your installation, click on the "Install Cygwin now" link
on the http://cygwin.com/ web page. This downloads setup.exe to
your system.  Save it and run setup, answer the questions and pick
up 'tetex-base' or 'tetex-tiny' from the 'Publishing' category.

If you have questions or comments, please send them to the Cygwin
mailing list at: cygwin@cygwin.com .  I would appreciate it if you would
use this mailing list rather than emailing me directly.  This includes
ideas and comments about the setup utility or Cygwin in general.

If you want to make a point or ask a question, the Cygwin mailing list
is the appropriate place.


CAVEATS:

   * After installation, /etc/postintall/post-texmf.sh[.done] gets
     executed, to configure teTeX and generate the format files.  If
     anything goes wrong, you may want to look at this script, or
     rerun it after you fixed stuff.

   * Kpathsea has been patched to not search down UNC paths by
     default.  Problems with configuration settings may trigger
     searches into the `hosts' `//share' and `//texmf', which is not
     what you want.  If you're using TeX over the network, make sure
     your configuration is fixed, and set environment variable
     `KPSE_SEARCH_UNC'.


Requirements and DLLs.

seems, they sometimes do not get selected automagically.
