I am using the MacTex-2007 package, with TeXLive-2007 set as the
distribution to use in TeXShop.
I was using the i-package system before, and just upgraded a few days
ago, but the problems have existed before the upgrade.
The Problem:
I have NEVER been able to get
\begin{equation*}
[equation body]
\end{equation*}
to work.
Error is:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
! LaTeX Error: Environment equation* undefined.
See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type H <return> for immediate help.
...
l.49 \begin{equation*}
?
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
It always chokes on the *. I can use \[ \] or a plain
\begin{equation}...
Also, I can't get \boxed{ } to work either. Error is:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
! Undefined control sequence.
l.50 \boxed
{x=y}
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Am I missing some libraries or something? I also get the same error if I
use the fink distribution of LaTeX.
Any ideas anyone? I am tired of doing tedious work-a-rounds for this.
Thanks
