RE: New on sourceware: texmf-20000804-2

Just to confirm that with the latest tetex-20001208-4
and the cygwin texmf-*-* packages I don't need to 
set TEXMFMAIN anymore - although I still have
TEXINPUTS and the font related variables set to
"${HOME}/somewhere//:" for my CJK stuff.


BTW - pdftex in tetex-20001208-4 depends on the 
new (10-days-old) libpng 1.0.2 . One needs to 
upgrade that first - or run the 
scripts again after ungrading libpng. Re-installing
tetex will not re-run the postinstall script for 
some unknown reason.

Ok, so you're not using the texmf packages, and not using the latest

Could be.

Could also be.

The latest (experimental) tetex-beta + texmf-base packages should get
this right.  You may be looking at bugs that have been fixed, or you
may have some other problem.  Hard to tell.
