first of all let me thank you for your great work, it's fine to have a
working TeX with observance to all current changes without any private
- The request is concerning the tlmgr: is it possible to define a list
of error, warning, and informational messages with their meaning at
the end of the tlmgr help? If I read something like
not reinstalling forcibly removed package texlive-en
!!!Error: non-existent tlpkg/README
I can accept it, but I would prefer to understand the message: why is
it so, is there something wrong, do I have to intervene, ...
- The report: at my last update I got a message
Should not happen, please report: latexmk.x86_64-linux mentioned, but
neither new nor forcibly removed
So I do!
- Two hints:
* at the end of tlmgr help there are the following lines:
The respective locations are as follows:
"web2c/fmtutil.cnf" (and "fmtutil-local.cnf")
"web2c/updmap.cfg" (and "updmap-local.cnf")
Is that right, or should it read "cfg"?
* on http://tug.org/texlive/distro.html the line
Fedora: yum install 'perl(Tk)'
should read as
Fedora: yum install perl-Tk
