# [Bioc-devel] vignette LaTeX errors on the windows version (it builds in my laptop! 8-?)

hi again,

about my message below, just in case this rings the bell of anybody, i
installed windows xp in my macbook pro and all the stuff for developing
packages for R and bioconductor using the pre-release and development
versions, respectively, and i could run R CMD check without problems.
i'm using MiKTeX.

since i cannot reproduce the problem i'm tempted to think that something
may be broken on the latex distribution at this server 'gewurz' but
again most packages build fine on this server, so something must be
going on in the latex source of the vignette from my package.

these are the first lines of that source:

%\VignetteIndexEntry{Reverse-engineer transcriptional regulatory
networks using qpgraph}
%\VignetteKeywords{qp-graph, microarray, network}
%\VignettePackage{qpTxRegNet}
\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\usepackage{times}
\usepackage{mathptm}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{natbib}
\usepackage{fullpage}

\title{Reverse engineering transcriptional regulatory networks \\ from
gene expression microarray data using {\tt qpgraph}}
\author{Robert Castelo and Alberto Roverato}

\begin{document}
....

again, any help will be appreciated,

robert.

dear fellow developers,

i'm maintainer of a recently accepted package called 'qpgraph' and i've
encounter the following error in the BUILD report of the windows version
compiled at the server 'gewurz':

Error in texi2dvi(file = bft, pdf = TRUE, clean = FALSE, quiet =
quiet) :
running 'texi2dvi' on 'qpTxRegNet.tex' failed

LaTeX errors:
D:/biocbld/bbs-2.4-bioc/meat/qpgraph/inst/doc/qpTxRegNet.tex:78: Font \csname\e
I wasn't able to read the size data for this font,
so I will ignore the font specification.

the entire BUILD report for 'gewurz' can be retrieved directly through this link:

http://bioconductor.org/checkResults/2.4/bioc-LATEST/qpgraph/gewurz-buildsrc.html

i develop on a linux box where this problem does not appear and therefore i'd appreciate
if any of you can give me some hint on how can i fix this error.

thanks!!
robert.
