Works for me. It was heavily tested between beamer, beamer-article and all the hundreds of packages required to make the lecture notes. :-)

Thank you. :-)

BZ#1599508 texlive update still has issues with failed dependencies
User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

I still have the following error:

! Package inputenc Error: Invalid UTF-8 byte sequence. See the inputenc package documentation for explanation. Type H <return> for immediate help. ...
l.109 \maketitle

With F28 all is working fine.

@anonymous: do you have a minimal working example where that fails? If so you could open a bug report at bugzilla to track it there?

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

In my case it has something to do with the new standard encoding of the LaTeX-Kernel and I found a solution with '\UseRawInputEncoding \input'. But I have another problem:

In /usr/bin, two symbolic links are created for dvipdfm and dvipdfm. They both point to /usr/bin/xdvipdfmx which isn't there.

User Icon jamatos commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

I have the xdvipdmx binary installed, it belong to the texlive-xetex package. The symbolic links just work, so I suppose you do not have it installed...

User Icon anonymous commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

This is interesting. You are absolutely right, this package isn't installed... but in Fedora 28 this package always were installed along with the simple installation of the texlive package. Nevertheless thank you very much! Now it works fine and sorry for my question. I know this is not the right place for something like this but I thought it was a bug with failed dependencies.

@spot: in the newly workstation installation an install command on texlive-scheme-full the following error comes back:

"Error: Problem: package texlive-scheme-full-8:svn44177-20.fc29.noarch requires texlive-collection-binextra, but none of the providers can be installed - conflicting requests - nothing provides texlive-xindy needed by texlive-collection-binextra-8:svn47945-20.fc29.noarch"

Are you aware of this? And is this what #1599508 described?

User Icon kakosf commented & provided feedback 2 years ago

@chatucker, I filed the bug you've mentioned, which is another dependency issue #1643664.

As I've described there, the reason is that there is no such package, ie "texlive-xindy", in the official repositories.

The response was that the aforementioned package was disabled.
