This file is missing from the Fedora TeXLive package:

>        Master-2007.0/texmf-dist/fonts/map/dvips/cm-super/cm-super-t1.map
because we don't package cm-super.zip. The reason is its huge size (66M
112M expanded). TeXLive would only hardly fit to any Fedora LiveCD media if
package it. Is there any way how to generate correct pdftex map files
cm-super installed?

Thanks for any help,
