Summary     : The TeX text formatting system.
Description :
TeTeX is an implementation of TeX for Linux or UNIX systems. TeX takes
a text file and a set of formatting commands as input and creates a
typesetter-independent .dvi (DeVice Independent) file as output.
Usually, TeX is used in conjunction with a higher level formatting

Install tetex if you want to use the TeX text formatting system. If
you are installing tetex, you will also need to install tetex-afm (a
PostScript(TM) font converter for TeX),
tetex-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript format
for printing on PostScript printers), tetex-latex (a higher level
formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX),
and tetex-xdvi (for previewing .dvi files in X). Unless you are an
expert at using TeX, you should also install the tetex-doc package,
which includes the documentation for TeX.

Updated tetex package fixes another xpdf buffer overflow. The Common
