About two weeks ago I reported this problem.  I now recompiled and
reinstalled teTeX---and still get the exact same errors.

So here is the problem:

I create a brand new user, tetex; I do

su - tetex

and create the file try.tex as:


Then I do

latex try
xdvi try&

and I get 

 kpathsea: Running mktexpk --mfmode ljfivemp --bdpi 600 --mag 1+0/600
 --dpi 600 pbkl7t
mktexpk: Running mf \mode:=ljfivemp; mag:=1+0/600; nonstopmode; input
This is METAFONT, Version 2.7182 (Web2C 7.3.1)

kpathsea: Running mktexmf  pbkl7t

<*> ...mp; mag:=1+0/600; nonstopmode; input pbkl7t

kpathsea: Appending font creation commands to missfont.log.
xdvi.bin: Can't find font pbkl7t.600pk
xdvi.bin: Not all pixel files were found

Of course, I have 

find /usr/local/teTeX/ -name "*pbkl7t*"                

Here are my exact installation notes:



Unpack, compile:

mkdir -p /usr/local/teTeX/texmf
tar zxvfp  teTeX-texmf-1.0.tar.gz -C /usr/local/teTeX/texmf
tar zxvf teTeX-src-1.0.tar.gz
cd teTeX-1.0

./configure --disable-multiplatform
sh -c 'make world >world.log 2>&1' &


Then I changed texmf.cnf; the diff from the original is at 


The output of 

texconfig confall 

is at 


The output of 

strace xdvi try > xdvi.strace.out  2>&1

is at


I have

[tetex@thales tetex]$ echo $PATH

[tetex@thales tetex]$ which xdvi

My system is a RedHat 7.0 Linux (kernel-2.2.16). 

Thx for any help.
