a. hacking away at install-tl.sh until I have a non-interactive,
pre-scripted way of doing the same thing
What I do for my non-interactive test installs is simply feed input to
TL in a here document, see below. I wrote it for myself, so it's
bare-bones, but maybe it will give you an idea.
A non-interactive variant or front-end or option or whatever for
install-tl would be most welcome, e.g., using the usual configure
--prefix and other options. If you feel like hacking up something
distributable, that would be greate.
For an installation from scratch, my recommendation would be to use
install-tl, not install-pkg. (And I also recommend doing the full
[default] installation, so that you never have to use install-pkg
afterwards, either. :)
(Would an install-pkg of collection-basic be enough to
get up and running?)
I don't know.
BTW, I'm sure the current sources don't install properly. I haven't
updated the tpm's in quite a while.
