Build error for texlive


I'm trying to build k9copy which requires ffmpeg, ffmpeg requires texi2html,
which I can't find.
Code:
bash-4.2# which texi2html
which: no texi2html in (/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin)
bash-4.2#
but locate finds it:
Code:
bash-4.2# locate texi2html*
/usr/share/texinfo/html/texi2html.html
/usr/share/texmf/doc/help/Catalogue/entries/texi2html.html
bash-4.2#
So, I was trying to build texlive. When I try to build texlive I get the following error:

pkgtools shows tetex-3.0-i486-8.txz and tetex-doc-3.0-i486-8.txz as being
installed. I've removed both packages and re-installed them with:
Code:
cd /Downloads/k9copy/ffmpeg/texlive
removepkg tetex-3.0-i486-8.txz
removepkg tetex-doc-3.0-i486-8.txz
installpkg tetex-3.0-i486-8.txz
installpkg tetex-doc-3.0-i486-8.txz
and I still get the build error. I've sent an email to slackbuild.org, and the response was
Quote:
"Note that this package is intended to completely replace (and then some) the tetex packages in Slackware, so you'll need to remove tetex and tetex-doc before installing TeXLive (but NOT before BUILDING it)."
What am I overlooking? A bit of help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Larry

you don't need texlive to build ffmpeg, you need just tetex in slackware.

when you build your packages you need to become root with
Code:
su -
not just
Code:
su
it's in ffmpeg's README

besides that, k9copy it's not yet compatible with ffmpeg-0.11 in slackbuilds.org.

Tetex is enough, you do not need texlive. Tetex has texi2html in /usr/share/texmf/bin/texi2html. /usr/share/texmf/bin should be in your PATH because it is set in /etc/profile.d/tetex.sh. Seems that you have reset the PATH variable to not include e.g. tetex binaries, as your PATH only has /usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/sbin:/usr/sbin:/bin:/usr/bin.

ponce & Petri Kaukasoina,
Thanks for the information. I now see what I was doing wrong to not have the proper path.

THANKS.
