I hope this is the right list for this issue - I couldn't find another
one that was more appropriate.
Norbert, is there a Japanese TeX users list where Karen could get help
on Japanese-specific issues?
advice to others in this
situation is to avoid changing what's on the given machine
FWIW, I agree with that advice, so your subsequent efforts in building
are hopefully not wasted :).
*Is there a build of dvipdfmx that works with glibc 2.5? Or do I
need to build my own?*
I guess you need to build your own. I am somewhat surprised that only
dvipdfmx complains, since all the binaries were built on the same
system. But whatever.
I wish I could "see" the test dvi somehow to know that uptex
Try running pdvitype foo.dvi. At least it should parse the DVI file,
although the results are just a textual version of the input.
there is no such thing as "uppdftex".
As I understand it, the necessities of Japanese typesetting make it
impractical, and dvipdfmx is ubiquitious.
dvi2tty: Id-byte is not correct: 3
I'm not surprised those usual programs cannot handle the Japanese .dvi
files. In a way, they should have a different extension (.pdvi),
because they simply aren't Knuthian DVI files.
Hope this helps,
