--------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 ( has assigned the name CAN-2005-0064 to this issue. --------------------------------------------------------------------- * Wed Jan 19 2005 Jindrich Novy <> 2.0.2-14FC2.2 - Fix CAN-2005-0064 xpdf buffer overflow. --------------------------------------------------------------------- This update can be downloaded from: a5a81e044a2c04d3e0660b042af55885 SRPMS/tetex-2.0.2-14FC2.2.src.rpm 7814a7a4eb0dd3034f5e879d406e62be x86_64/tetex-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm bbbf2332dd32a5a42cd9749f1628191e x86_64/tetex-latex-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm 994b09544080c1944e12d57c761336bf x86_64/tetex-xdvi-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm a1d3bb0ccaed44934f3e3a486f2b96a4 x86_64/tetex-dvips-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm 06088aeb66100917f98d5214e9d94505 x86_64/tetex-afm-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm e9c5029a301ad76aeb1560413ce49ae4 x86_64/tetex-fonts-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm 84fa5364a63369de36ee805278c28283 x86_64/tetex-doc-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm 0b0bba10010837d6e540c8147bb5ef19 x86_64/debug/tetex-debuginfo-2.0.2-14FC2.2.x86_64.rpm 20a9d0d56e250daa49c22fbf86d3542d i386/tetex-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm 07ec2a1e12ab0de545fda03dc03e4e06 i386/tetex-latex-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm 6daf5e9f338acfb1925064e5b597517c i386/tetex-xdvi-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm 0426e7ce0092f67e2bed16c55459299c i386/tetex-dvips-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm 3d7bdc9226dfd3e7837303d7dd62a911 i386/tetex-afm-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm ff61c271196af90584fe3e8b84cc9f89 i386/tetex-fonts-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm e5d95b7b0c2d519e36e42f0a2c3b4a17 i386/tetex-doc-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm 9fe72e8dae433e6b675f9470a5d1d7c5 i386/debug/tetex-debuginfo-2.0.2-14FC2.2.i386.rpm This update can also be installed with the Update Agent; you can launch the Update Agent with the 'up2date' command. --------------------------------------------------------------------- -- fedora-announce-list mailing list
