Subject [jira] [Commented] (ACCUMULO-702) build on ubuntu hangs without required dependencies
Date Wed, 25 Jul 2012 03:03:35 GMT


Josh Elser commented on ACCUMULO-702:


I can't say I'm a big fan of hard-coding Linux distro-specific logic into the script. Given
my (brief) understanding of TeX distributions across Linux distributions, there isn't a good
way to determine if multirow.sty is actually included on the user's system. Since this is
about the third time this has come up on the dev list, I thought I'd suggest some alternatives:

# Bundle a pre-compiled PDF and the tex file and leave the dependencies up to the user if
they want to modify/rebuild the PDF
# Bundle the multirow.sty (and other necessary dependencies) with the other stuff in docs/src/user_manual

Personally, I think the first alternative makes the most sense. If someone really wants to
recompile the PDF, it's up to them to have a correct TeX installation.
