There's no good place to post this, like a shell forum, so I'm putting it here, too. I realize this probably breaks all kind of rules, but we don't have a proper place for this question, such as a shell forum. So I do what seems best under the circumstances.

I need texi2pdf, but cannot find it what-so-ever in portage. I could just grap a tarball and make && make install, but so far I've only had to go outside of portage once.

Searching the forum, I found three references, each of which hit on texi2pdf as an error message in a posted emerge log.

greping portage, it looks like texinfo no longer installs texe2pdf, because the think tetex does. But tetex does not.

Anyone know more about this?

Hi.

I believe this message should have gone to the Portage & Programming forum.
While searching for an answer to your question, I first asked emerge to find out what packages with name texi exist in Portage. From there I tried the following
Code:
atlantida linux # equery files texinfo | grep texi2
/usr/bin/texi2dvi
/usr/bin/texi2pdf
/usr/share/man/man1/texi2dvi.1.gz
atlantida linux #

This means that the texinfo package should provide the texi2pdf command. You can try to reemerge texinfo to see if that solves your problem. In case you're wondering this is my version of texinfo
Code:
atlantida linux # emerge -s texinfo
