As Aaron and Gerben just said, things look pretty bad. It might be
you'll have to:
- First re-install Panther (in Archive & Install mode), clicking on
Personalize at the step where you can, and making sure BSD subsystem
- Then re-install the TeX i-Package, making sur the last item (CLI
activation) is selected.
Warning: Archive & Install is a rather painful (or at least time-
consuming) process, in that you'll have to make sure that, for all
the additional software that you had installed through installers,
all the pieces that had been put inside /Library/ (like plugins,
printer drivers, PPDs, etc.) and which have been displaced to /
Previous Systems/Previous System1/Library/ by Archive & Install are
put back in place. Plus all the additional software installed in
invisible directories like /usr/local/ (the default location for
software installed by i-Installer) will need to be re-installed.
An alternative solution which might work:
- Get the first Panther CD and, in the Optional Installs folder,
double-click the symlink BSD Subsystem and proceed.
- Then re-install the Tex i-Package.
If everything goes well, you should eventually get something like:
$ echo $PATH
/usr/local/bin is added, for example, if you installed the
GhostScript i-Package, and /usr/local/teTeX/bin/powerpc-apple-darwin-
current by the TeX i-Package. There may be additional directories in
case you installed additional software like Fink or DarwinPorts.
