Hi Arne!

With the new packages just in upload process this should not happen
anymore, but I have some specific comments:

Do you have lmodern or texlive-fontsrecommended installed? In my chroot
cage with fontsrecommended installed, it does work without any problems.
Maybe your lmodern.sty is coming from the lmodern debian package. I have
to add some conflict or something like this.

This should be gone with the new version where only those formats really
installed are generated.

I can confirm the following:
I can latex the file, but dvips does not work. For this you have to
install the texlive-fontsextra which contains the fpl fonts.

Wether this is intended or not, I don't now.
(And it shouldn depend on texlive-mathextra, are you sur?)

Also this I cannot reproduce. If you have lmodern,sty, this is in
texlive-fontsrecommended, but then you should also have the actial
fonts. Probably as above a problem with the installed lmodern package.
PLease remove it (sorry, I hope to find something better soon).

Thanks for testing, and when you see new information on the tug.org
texlive/debian website, you can also retry if you have the time and
nerves, thanks in advance!

Should be done soon, something like one hour.

Best wishes
