Is texlive 2017 using 2016 in multiple places? Directories?
I was starting to install texlive 2017 on a linux box. I followed the
and I downloaded the installer. I'm using the installer
install-tl-20170413, which came from the mirror:
The file was last modified on 12-Apr-2017.
When I run the installer using
the gui is not the same as Figure 3 in:
Instead there is 2016 wherever there was a 2017 in the Figure. In
particular, the title is TeX Live 2016 Installation. Also, TEXDIR is
/usr/local/texlive/2016, and so on.
Is this the 2016 installer or the 2017 installer?
I tried downloading it again to see if a different mirror might have a
different version, but it was the same.
Is this the correct installer for texlive 2017? If not, am I looking in
the wrong place for the 2017 installer?
The quick install documentation suggests a pre-install cleanup:
rm -rf /usr/local/texlive/2016
rm -rf ~/.texlive2017
Should the first be 2016 or is texlive 2017 being installed in that
BTW, the full installation documentation does not mention this cleanup.
