ModernCV fails to be compiled

#1

Hi all,

Just came accorss Tectonic and I think it’s awesome since one of the burdens I have is install all the dependencies to compile documents (since I work in multiple different workstations).

I am unable to compile a moderncv. The error I had initially was related to “Font Awesome” which seems to be fixed as I have found some suggestions here https://github.com/tectonic-typesetting/tectonic/issues/157

Now it fails with

$ tectonic cv.tex                                                                                                                                                     1 ↵  ✭master

Hi @inglor,

First of all, apologies for taking a loooong time to reply to your query. I started a new job in November and it’s been extremely hard to work on Tectonic since then.

The messages about getc failures are weird! I don’t have a guess about what’s going on there.

Would you be able to post a minimal example TeX document that triggers the problem for you?

Hi @pkgw,

The one I used is available publicly here https://github.com/inglor/cv

Cheers,
