I have just done university wide TL6 installation
for i386-linux, mips-irix6.5, sparc-solaris2.7
and win32 platforms. Couple of comments:

Now copying selected files, from the lists in /tmp/.tmp_inst.14374... 
Copy files listed in tex-basic
Copy files listed in tex-documentation
Copy files listed in tex-langarmenian
Copy files listed in tex-langcjk
/packages/run/links/bin/gtar: Could not create file man/man1/hbf2gf.1 : Permission denied

Maybe because of installing for 4 platforms in parallel?


Testing for /packages/share/texlive-6/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/texconfig....
I will now run "texconfig init" to initialize your system.
making language.dat in /packages/share/texlive-6/texmf-var/tex/generic/config
from your language selections
Wait while format files are made, which may take some minutes ...

fatal: memory exhausted (xmalloc of 64000008 bytes).
/packages/share/texlive-6/bin/sparc-solaris2.7/fmtutil: log_failure: not found

As I selected installing all, language.dat contains all language
hyphenation patterns (20+). As it seems to be too much,
I'd suggest some language selection instead (for the case "install all").


pdfetex and mpost binaries were not installed
by install script -- one needs manual install
as they are requested by texconfig
