- 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?
Well, the messages are meant to be self-explanatory, although admittedly
they are often less than perfect in that regard. In any case, it's not
practical to try to maintain a different list of what they "really"
mean, since the list of messages is completely open-ended and changes
frequently. But thanks for the suggestion.
Other messages indicate bugs so there's no way to predict or explain
them in advance.
not reinstalling forcibly removed package texlive-en
Maybe you selected the option "do not install doc". No other ideas are
coming to me.
!!!Error: non-existent tlpkg/README
There was a bug in our original definition of the tlmgr package.
(No doubt there are still bugs in the current definition, too.)
- 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!
Thanks. Clearly there is some bug in tlmgr regarding this, but so far
it is eluding us.
"web2c/updmap.cfg" (and "updmap-local.cnf")
Is that right, or should it read "cfg"?
You are right. Fixed. Sharp eyes :).
Fedora: yum install 'perl(Tk)'
should read as
Fedora: yum install perl-Tk
As I recall, it was the Fedora maintainers who gave us the first
incantation. Maybe the package has changed names. Anyway, I listed
Thanks for all the reports.
