tetex FC6



Bonjour,

as a TeX user I very puzzled using TeX/LaTeX under FC6:

1- man is not up to date: it refers to initex (and some other init
scripts for TeX which no longer exist...)

2- as it took almost 10 seconds before latex begun to compile a file, I
used strace to see why.... and I discovered that latex was reading all
directories in my home dir to find the file it needed to compile my
(small) test file!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It is more and more like M$ which search a file in all possible
directories instead of reading an uptodate database.

Don't understand why it is like this!

QUESTIONS:
how to build babel format for latex, pdflatex and Co as initex and
pdfinitex no longer exist?

how to prevent TeX/Latex read all directories and subdirectories and
subsubdirectories and.... before compiling a file. In a word: how to set
the environment variables .....

Regards.
