I desperately need help.
I am using pdflatex under opensuse 10.3 (i.e. the latest version).
I have two computers with what I thought was exactly the same
installation. But on one computer the processing of my simple
.tex file works without problems. On the other computer I get
the following error message
> pdflatex dpetry-cv.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.141592-1.40.3 (Web2C 7.5.6)
entering extended mode

LaTeX Warning: You have requested document class `myarticle',
but the document class provides `article'.

Type X to quit or <RETURN> to proceed,
or enter new name. (Default extension: sty)
I tried to reinstall everything from the default repositories.
I tried to compare the contents of the relevant directories on the
two computers. I tried to compare the settings of the environment
variables and the output of texconfig.
I can't find any difference between the two installations.
The missing file 'html.sty' is actually not missing!
It is in /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/html/html.sty !
As it is on the machine where everything is working.
I suspect some setup file is not correctly written.
But which one.
And how can this be if I installed everything as it
came from the repository on both machines?
Thanks in advance.
