Hi Daniel,

    1) The installation ends with 'Welcome to TeXLive' but
       no format is built. I have to launch the script 
       'fmtutil --all' by hand.

This is normal, as far as I know.  The formats should get built on the
fly, as they are invoked.  (My little testbed builds tex, latex, pdftex,
pdflatex, and cont-en, is working ok.)

    2) The script updmap is not launched automatically either.

Now this I don't understand.  It sure did get run at one point, when I
was testing (also on Linux).  I will look into it (unless someone else
beats me to it), and the interminable map file problems you found.

Thanks for trying things out.
