Exporting directly to pdf didn't work, at least not from within the gui. I didn't much investigate why. With the tiny changes I make, I budget 5-10 minutes, tops, of debugging time per session. :-) The only export that worked was to ps. And, yes, some of the font-relevant formatting is bad, but it gives me enough info to see if things will probably be ok. BTW, we should have that ff changes table ready soon.


I hadn't considered using a non-standard rhel repository. I can try centos. I keep thinking that since UGA pays for the rhel site license, the least rhel could do is make this sort of thing easier. The last time I looked, there wasn't a rhel-based "yum install lyx" available. Maybe there is one now since you say centos has one. I did try doing it by hand natively in rhel, and, yes, the dependencies were insane. I resolved a few and decided it was faster just to go home and use my Slack box where it installed immediately.

With your solution, don't lots of the code examples run off the page? Also, exporting to pdflatex (--export pdf2) should be faster and better than going through Postscript. As with macintosh, TexLive 2010 is worth trying, but I don't have actual experience with this on Linux.
