latex2html broke my LaTeX installation on Mac OS X Yosemite
—A remedy to correct my LaTeX installation on Yosemite.
using Mac Ports:# sudo port install latex2html
Looked good but it messed up my LaTeX style files so that none of my LaTeX files would build.
To correct this had to take the following actions.# sudo port uninstall texlive-latex texlive-basic texlive-bin# sudo port install texlive-latex# sudo texhash
Had to reinstall several style files (e.g., etoolbox.sty
Picked up the style files from ctan.org.
These went into /opt/local/share/texmf-texlive/tex/latex
. Then# sudo texhash
LaTeX restored and operational.
