Description Horea Christian 2016-12-02 17:53:01 UTC
fvextra.sty is required to compile newer versions of at least one other gentoo package

Apparently it is provided by texlive-2016. In Arch Linux it's provided by =dev-texlive/texlive-latexextra-2016, but the newest we have is =dev-texlive/texlive-latexextra-2015-r1

Perhaps a version bump is all that is needed?

I do not know any distribution with recent texlive support. 
Unfortunately the texlive ebuild in gentoo is outdated too.

I suggest to use the texlive installer from
to get the most recent textlive.

Can you provide the full package names and version of ebuilds that depend on fvextra.sty? We should link them here as dependency/blocker

I am only aware of =dev-tex/pythontex-0.15 and =dev-tex/pythontex-9999 , which require it. Pythontex is in gentoo-science (and maintained by myself). In the mean time should I just not push the pythontex version bump to the repo?

As for the texlive installer, I would like to avoid installing software not tracked by portage - also, I would like to continue to provide newer pythontex versions to users of Gentoo.

Sadly, I have read the texlive bump story and I am definitely nowhere close to up to the task of sorting this out myself - and I currently lack the time to become thus. What can I do other than wait?
