# [tex-live] Omega??

My omega/lambda can create formats, but when I try to typeset a file it
fails. I get an endless display on screen of [][][][][][]:

and I have to close the Terminal window to kill the process.

Support for omega/lambda is beyond my capabilities. I know others have
been able to run it (other versions), but I just follow the official
release from TeX Live. I have seen quite a bit of mail on different
versions (1.15 vs 1.23 mostly) but as I am not even a user my means to
solve this are pretty limited.

There is a test file I got from someone at
ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/comp/macosx/lamtest.tex (contains unicode)

Can somebody tell me what needs to be done to get this working?

Thanks,

G

PS. From some discussions I get the idea that omega/lambda is dead. Is
that correct?
