[tex-live] texlive-final-20010730.iso.bz2, windows, and 'SIunits'
Wed, 27 Mar 2002 10:03:40 -0500
I run on a Windows 2000 Intel platform. I downloaded the bzipped
image of the CD from ftp://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/systems/texlive,
file name 'texlive-final-20010730.iso.bz2'.
I used bzip2 (--help says it's version 1.0.0 (16-May-2000)) to explode
this image, and then I used a CD burner utility to create my CD. All
went very well. It runs and is perfectly usable for my purposes.
However, when I copied the CD to my hard drive (so I can use the CD
player for something else), Windows indicated problems. Turns out,
several directories in the CD image have these two subdirectory
names 'SIunits' and 'siunits':
This works fine for Unix, where case matters. However, the Windows
system doesn't like it too much.
Anyway, the CD is still perfect for my use, so I'm not logging a
bug to be fixed. (I haven't even paid dues, so I've no right to
complain about anything anyway!) Just thought you'd like to know.
Thanks for a great service,
