Thanks for the buglink! After following the link in that bug to bug 90915, and tried reemerging tetex after closing X. Closed X, logged in as root and reemerged tetex and it seems to work fine now! Oddness indeed, i suppose the root environment needed to be set up properly when emerging tetex...

tetex has been obsoleted and isn't maintained any longer - a lot of the stuff included in tetex is now old. Are there any alternatives to tetex in portage atm?

For the sake of completeness: TeXLive is available. Also have a look at g-CTAN for other packages.

I used to work with miktex in windows before, and just recently switched to gentoo. TexLive was one of the first things I installed and I must say I am pretty dissapointed. mainly by the fact that tlmgr is removed from ebuild, which means no automatic latex class downloads available on demand, you have to install them manually one by one, or raher install some bundles through portage interface. Why deleting tlmgr? I do not get it!

It is because you work as user and the installation of texlive was done as root and maintained by your package manager. If tlmgr works on its own then it will bypass the package manager. That is not how package management works in gentoo/linux in general.
