Peter, Herbert, et al,

OK. The test file still is:





And yes, we are compiling with latex. If this were just one file we were worried about, no problem. However, we have a whole database of files on our Optimath system here at school that depend upon being first compile with latex (followed by some further commands), so we need to get past this first step:

And the error message still is:

! Undefined control sequence.
l.3814 \@PackageInfoNoLine

The listfiles command produced:

Finally, if we switch the package loading, the file compiles.





However, we fear this switching because of the hundreds of other files that might go wrong.

Finally, we tried tlmgr update --list [pst-pdf], but got the message:

tlmgr: [pst-pdf] mentioned, but neither new nor forcibly removed
tlmgr: no updates available.
