Hello all,

I apologize for posting such a beginner problem, as I'm just learning.  
I managed to get a simple hello world working with latex and the DVI to  
PDF conversion tools (command line) happily, but then following a setup  
tutorial here:


I was unable to get the more complicated example to work due to an  
error with the initial line:


Trying the same thing in TeXShop gets the same error. I am using MacOS  
X 10.3.8 and newly installed TeX with the steps below (from my setup  
notes). As a note, I also have Fink on my computer, but did not use  
that to install TeX. Details follow. I welcome any thoughts.

I didn't find anything I could use on Google. (That's not to say that  
someone more knowledgeable couldn't have found something helpful, but  
I'm not there yet.)

Error transcript:

~/Documents/TeX$ latex second.tex
This is pdfeTeX, Version 3.141592-1.20b-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.3)
entering extended mode

Babel <v3.8d> and hyphenation patterns for american, nohyphenation,  

! LaTeX Error: Environment lstlisting undefined.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.

OK, entering \batchmode

\title{My First Document}  
\section{My first section}  
     Now I'm up and running, see equation (\ref{eqn:random}).  
          \alpha^{\beta}=\frac{\sqrt{\int_{0}^{\infty}x^2 dx}}{\beta}  
     A paragraph  
     Another paragraph.  
     Still the same paragraph. In the formatted document, this paragraph 
     will not have a line break after the first sentence.  
     \subsection{In more detail}\label{sec:subsectionmoredetail}  
          Subsection text. The indents don't have to be here,  
          but they help you see the document structure.  

Setup steps: (per my install notes, I'm detailed about noting what goes  
onto my PowerBook so I can remove it later in the case of problems)

*) Install TeX with the i-Installer, using II2.dmg
	a) Install i-Installer 2.69.0 in Applications/Utilities
		1) Keeps notes in the Documents/i-Packages directory - do not delete
	b) Using it, install from the i-Directory at Yale:
	c) FreeType 2 (release notes last changed 2004/01/14)
	d) libwmf (last changed 2004/01/31)
	e) GhostScript 8 (2004/12/20)
		1) Add /usr/local/bin to environment? yes
	f) ImageMagick (2004/02/07)
	g) FontForge (2004/05/19)
	h) TeX - the big one (2005/02/13)
		1) Expert Install
		2) 2005 Devel. (can change mind later, it says)
		3) Select all packages (parts)
		4) Configure what? Select the default
		5) Select languages: american and nohyphenation
		6) Paper size: Letter
		7) (It didn't ask me to put it into the path?) It did put it into the  
	i) CM Super (for PostScript type 1 fonts) (2004/11/06)
	a) Personal files should be stored in ~/Library/texmf
	b) folder structure inside ~/Library/texmf should mimic that inside  

*) Install TeXShop 1.35e
	a) Drag to Applications
	b) Drag the "texmf" to ~/Library from the DMG
	c) the example from  
mactexintro.html DOES NOT WORK

Many thanks for any insight.
