Denis, which pretest are you using?

Have you tried just grapping the latest installer and trying that?

Nice news: many thanks, Siep!

Unfortunately, on my Linux Mageia 6 box:

  │ $ /home/bitouze/tl-pretest/tlpretest/install-tl -gui tcl
  │ UI plugin tcl not found,
  │ Using text mode installer.
  │ [...]


  │ $ rpm -q tk
  │ tk-8.6.5-1.mga6
