I am using pdflatex under opensuse 10.3 without any modifications.
I have two computers with what I thought was exactly the same

On the first computer the processing of my relatively simple
myfile.tex file works without problems. But on the second computer I get

the following error message:

LaTeX Warning: You have requested document class `myarticle',

! LaTeX Error: File `html.sty' not found.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)

I.e. pdflatex claims it can't find the file html.sty even though
this file actually exists in the default location.
It is in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/html/html.sty .
As it is on the machine where everything is working.

I tried to reinstall everything from the default repositories.
I tried to compare the contents of the relevant directories on the
two computers. I tried to compare the settings of the environment
variables and the output of texconfig.
I can't find any difference between the two installations.
And the input files are identical.

I suspect some setup file is not correctly written.
But which one?
And how can this be if I installed everything as it
came from the repository on both machines without ever
making any modifications myself?

Please help!

Thanks in advance.


Try texhash as root. I have reported a similar bug with some texlive packages,
maybe this is the same.
