Hi friends!

Another bunch of comments, this time on install-tl.sh:

-     <O> options:
       [ ] alternate directory for generated fonts ()
       [ ] create symlinks in standard directories
       [ ] do not install macro/font doc tree
       [X] do not install macro/font source tree
pressing `O' I cannot select "do not install macro/font doc tree", if I
press `S' in the next menu I only get "do not install macro/font source

- running install:
install-tl.sh: line 948: /mnt/tpm/lists/lib-expat: file or directory not found

lots of: .caution: excluded filename not matched:  texmf/source\*

at the end there is *NO* bin directory, nothing executable!
Testing for /usr/local/norb/TeX/bin//texconfig....
updating map files 

then there are in INSTPATH/texmf-local/*...*/local directories with
mode drwxr-sr-x, which looks suspicous.

Hope this helps.

Best wishes

What the hell, he thought, you're only young once, and
threw himself out of the window. That would at least keep
the element of surprise on his side.
