As already reported on this other question I can't write on file 'foo.aux', when:
- Using the
--output-directoryoption of both
- Using Tex Live 2017 on Linux
The output directories are not created, i.e., if my directory structure is the following:
And I use the option
latexmk or pdflatex --output-directory=cache, the following directories are not going to be created by
pdflatex and the compilation will fail with the errors
I can't write on file 'thesis/cache/chapters/chapter1.aux'.
latexmk on Windows 10 with
MiKTeX-TeX 2.9.6300 everything works fine and the directories
thesis/cache/chapters, etc are going to be created correctly and automatically by Miktex.
This only does not work on Linux with
TeX 3.14159265 (TeX Live 2017/Debian).
Can I report this nasty bug for
TeX Live on Linux somewhere?
Or this is an intended behavior for
TeX Live on Linux?
Or is this already reported?
