For a long time I've been happily using TeXLive in Ubuntu, bypassing the 
packaging system and putting everything in the /usr/local tree to keep 
it separate from things installed by the system. It's important *not* to 
let the TeXLive installer put executables in /usr/bin or /usr/local/bin; 
instead, change the PATH to point to them. This will save a world of 
headaches later on.
