In the current texlive-core package, the file cmbase.sym is missing.
Example error message:

! LaTeX Error: File `cmbase.sym' not found.

This is a problem known to the TeX-Live packagers[1], but as I'm not sure when a new package for Arch is due (there isn't a new one in ), I'm reporting it here.

[1] TexLive 2014 version doesn't include cmbase.sym · Issue #4 · wspr/breqn :

Additional info:
* package version(s)
texlive-core 2014.34872-1
texlive-bin 2014.34260-1
* config and/or log files etc.

Steps to reproduce:
- Paste the following into test.tex (taken from a failing IPython iptest test case):
---[cut here]---
---[cut here]---
$ latex test.tex
This task depends upon

Indeed it is available since 20 August in upstream package. So it will be included in next minor revision or our texlive packages.
