# Differences in texlive implementations

I run the same input file in two computers, one having TeX Live/Debian under Ubuntu, the other with TeX Live/opensuse under SUSE 11.1. The second one fails to handle the file properly. In particular, it cannot resolve references of type \ref{label} in the list of figures and (probably therefore) it cannot break lines properly. Reading the log-files I just notice that pdfTeX under SUSE loads many additional packages not loaded by the Ubuntu distribution. Questions: Have you seen similar problems before? Anywhere I could read to get advice? How can I control which packages should pdftex load within each distribution?

Chances are high both distributions are using different versions of texlive with different versions of included packages, you can find the exact packages and versions by adding \listfiles to your preamble and comparing the output of both installation.
