Answers to letters about the the Virtual Distro Sampler DVD, the Knoppix DVD, and LaTeX on Mandriva.
Thanks for an excellent Mandriva 2008 DVD with Issue 88. Unfortunately, after the installation, I found I could not use LaTeX at all. When compiling a .tex file followed by dvips or dvipdf, the system complained of all fonts being missing and produced a small .ps file containing no text at all – just blank pages. Downloading later RPMs of teTeX and updating did not cure this symptom either.
