View Full Version : LaTeX in Sabayon

February 10th, 2007, 06:26 PM
I have Ubuntu, Debian, and Gentoo installed on my machine and am playing with all three. As a retired person (:)) I don't _have_ to do work on my computer.

One of the things that is important to me is a book (on assembly language) that I have nearly completed. It is written in LaTeX. The biggest problem I'm having with Gentoo is its LaTeX. I have migrated my Ubuntu and Debian to texlive since tetex will no longer be developed. I had to unmask livetex and do lots of things by hand in Gentoo in order to get it to install, and it still does not run correctly. The problem I had with Gentoo's tetex install is that it did different things with my book source. Fonts and page placement were different.

Does anyone know if texlive works in Sabayon?

BTW, I'm not inclined to write over my Gentoo with Sabayon without a good reason. The texlive issue would be a good reason. Perhaps someone has other good reasons.
