Dear Christian and fellows,
I am somewhat confused; maybe I have misunderstood the following sentence:
easy package management: missing packages can be installed
automatically; a wizard helps you to keep your MiKTeX system up-to-date
and this does not consern the beta versions (currently beta 9) of MiKTeX
2.5 - or?
I have made a clean installation of MiKTeX 2.5 every new beta version,
adding "C:\Program Files\MiKTeX 2.5\miktex\bin" (without quotes) in the
path (WinXP with SP2), added the languages (Finnish, Swedish, and UK
English) that I need, updated (always miktex-msvcrt offered - why?),
added C:\localtexmf to the Roots, updated formats, and refreshed FNDB.
However, running latex foo.tex in console always stops with first
"usepackage" - e.g. fancyhdr - that does not belong to the base
installation package, and the log tells that the installed miktex does
not know the Finnish hyphenation. - no question of automatic
installation of missing and needed packages.
Have I done something wrong with the installation, or is this most
important feature something that will not be added before the final
issue of version 2.5?
