CD TeX Live bug report
Tue, 8 Jan 2002 16:22:15 +0100 (CET)
I have a few bug reports concerning the TeX Live 6 CD:
1) in install-cd.sh I selected "Support for Czech/Slovak"; after the
installation procedure completes, the file
texmf/tex/generic/config/language.cz.dat is present, but skhyph.tex
mentioned within this file is missing.
The creation of latex.fmt etc. then fails; the following message
appears in texmf-var/texconfig.log:
! I can't find file `skhyph.tex'.
To copy the file skhyph.tex from the CD ROM solves the problem.
2) I tried to install the TeX Live 6 on my Debian GNU/Linux 2.1 system
(kernel version 2.0.34) and found that most of the binaries fail
with a SEGFAULT. TeX Live versions 4 and 5 run OK on the same
system and TeX Live 6 runs OK on Debian 2.2.
Since the binaries are compiled without debugging info, I could not
trace them. I guess that the problem is a mismatch of the shared
It would be helpful if prerequisites for running the TeX Live on
Linux were listed in a readme.
3) It would be also nice to note that a c++ compiler & libraries are
necessary to compile the sources (or better, the configure script
should warn that no c++ compiler was found and disable compiling
pdftex and friends).
