Thanks for noticing. I've tested only upgrade from texlive-2007
installation with no dvipdfmx installed. I'll fix it in the next
repo update.

The main texlive package installs only the basic scheme with minimal
functionality. (but the pdflatex works fine for me even with the basic
scheme). It you want to have more complex installation, just do yum
search texlive-scheme or texlive-collection and install what you need
:)
