CentOS 3 Comments

Hi,

https://ctan.org/tex-archive/graphics/pstricks/contrib/pst-barcode/
says that pst-barcode is included in texlive.

I installed texlive, and it can´t find pst-barcode.sty. Is that a bug in the packaging CentOS does, or is texlive in CentOS some derelict version?

  • CentOS has whatever version is in RHEL.

    sudo yum provides ‘*pst-barcode*’

    That says it is not available though in CentOS Linux 7.

  • texlive is a pain in the ass to have all the things that are included in contrib and other areas. The Fedora package breaks into 5932
    different subpackages and the RHEL is a sub-build of those which are felt can be maintained for the lifetime of a EL release. If you need more than what EL provides, most people just take the 10->28 hours to build a set of tetex packages from the Fedora ones.

    So far, it seems that this is pretty much the only thing that´s still missing, and it´s probably not difficult to install. I´ll try that first and see how it goes.

    I could create a Fedora-VM and delegate this kind of work to it, but that has its own issues …
