Name        : xdvik
Product     : Fedora 9
Version     : 22.84.14
Release     : 1.fc9
URL         : http://xdvi.sourceforge.net/
Summary     : An X viewer for DVI files
Description :
Xdvik, the kpathsea version of xdvi, is a previewer for DVI files
produced e.g. by the TeX or troff typesetting systems.

If you are installing texlive and you use PlainTeX or you are using DVI files,
you will also need to install xdvi which allows you to view DVI files.
Consider installing texlive-dvips (for converting .dvi files to PostScript
format for printing on PostScript printers), and texlive-latex (a higher level
formatting package which provides an easier-to-use interface for TeX).
