    function properly binary passes latex => /usr/bin/latex simple test this essential tool does not work at all, check your installation.

    That's the error message when I do a kile system check. This is on a fedora 10 machine. It also complains about KDVI, but I think that doesn't matter.

    So... how do I check my installation?

    [root@chant ~]# which latex
    /usr/bin/latex
    [root@chant ~]# rpm -qf /usr/bin/latex
    texlive-latex-2007-35.fc10.x86_64

    googling hasn't helped me. Is there an obvious howto I should be looking at to make kile behave on fedora?
    Thanks,
