Angry latex command not found


Hello,

I just installed the madwifi driver and want to install the documents for it. But as I do make in the docs directory I am getting an error bin/sh: latex: command not found. Obviously there is no latex command and I have tried to install it with yum (which gets stuck at a point and makes my cpu go at a 100%) and rpm. Rpm is not working either. Can someone tell me how I can get rid of that error message and install this program successfully.

I am using a compaq presario V2000 with Fedora core 6 installed and a new newbie. Thank you and any advice is greatly appreciated. I tried another thread with the heading "latex: command not found:" but it doesn't give the details as to how to get it through rpm or yum or other stuff. Details are what I need. Thanks

I am not sure how to check for it but I did a yum install kpackage and that command returned as "nothing to do". Can you tell me how I check if that package is installed? I tried the rpm query method but that didn't work. Maybe I was not typing out the name properly.

open a xterm or kterm and type kpackage and hit enter. It's just another package installing program to try since the other stuff isn't working for you.
