To pass review the fonts parts of TEXLive must conform to Packaging:FontsPolicy

texlive-fontspec should Require texlive-xkeyval --Mef 15:27, 20 August 2009 (UTC) DONE

texlive-xepersian should depend on: texlive-bidi, texlive-fontspec, texlive-xetex.noarch (.noarch seems to be required, otherwise yum picks the old texlive-xetex from 2007 package list, which is obsolete by texlive 2009). I guess that there are lots of such dependencies. Isn't there any automatic way to find them?! Also, isn't there any amsalpha.bst file in TexLive 2009?! I have a document which uses amsalpha as its bibstyle. None of the current packages provide this file. What has happened to it?! -- Hedayat 11:04 (updated on 12:40), 21 August 2009 (UTC).

texlive-fontspec dependencies are now fixed. Pulling in the texlive-xetex from the old TL2007 is now fixed as well with the newly added versioned Requires. Virtual provides such as tetex-latex are added for compatibility.

texlive-fontspec still has some issues (as of Jan 2010 -- packages from Nov 2009?). I had to add texlive-euenc and texlive-lm for it to stop complaining. --Mef 15:20, 19 January 2010 (UTC)


I just installed texlive on Fedora 11 from your repo and I am having problems with dependency resolution. On doing "yum update" I get a dependency issue with kpathsea. The output is as follows,

 # yum update

I apologise if this is the wrong place to report the problem. --Fatka 15:04, 27 April 2010 (UTC)
