Fedora Update Notification
FEDORA-2004-048
2005-01-24
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Product : Fedora Core 2
Name : tetex
Version : 2.0.2
Release : 14FC2.2
Summary : The TeX text formatting system.
Description :
TeTeX is an implementation of TeX for Linux or UNIX systems. TeX takes a text file and a set of formatting commands as input and creates a typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file as output. Usually, TeX is used in conjunction with a higher level formatting package like LaTeX or PlainTeX, since TeX by itself is not very user-friendly.

Install tetex if you want to use the TeX text formatting system. If you are installing tetex, you will also need to install tetex-afm (a PostScript(TM) font converter for TeX), tetex-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript format
for printing on PostScript printers), tetex-latex (a higher level formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX), and tetex-xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X). Unless you are an expert at using TeX, you should also install the tetex-doc package, which includes the documentation for TeX.

---------------------------------------------------------------------
Update Information:

Updated tetex package fixes another xpdf buffer overflow. The Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures projects (cve.mitre.org) has assigned the name CAN-2005-0064 to this issue.
