Just wanted to report an install bug and my fix to see if it could be of
assistance.  I installed TeXLive with the online installer with defaults on
Ubuntu 8.10 64-bit and upon trying to run tlmgr received the error:

Can't locate TeXLive/TLConfig.pm in @INC (@INC contains: //tlpkg /etc/perl
/usr/local/lib/perl/5.10.0 /usr/local/share/perl/5.10.0 /usr/lib/perl5
/usr/share/perl5 /usr/lib/perl/5.10 /usr/share/perl/5.10
/usr/local/lib/site_perl .)

Upon further inspection, @INC did not have a path to the default install

so adding
use lib qw(/usr/local/texlive/2008/tlpkg);

to the tlmgr script at the beginning of the use statements will remedy the
problem.  For some reason the attempt to do this with kpsewhich and $MASTER
does not function on my machine.

I am running,
