Installed on sparc solaris 2.7 texlive from Master tree rsync'ed
2004-09-18 I assume it is the same as installing from texlive-live CD.
It is not quite the same, but it is close enough to be useful.
1. Installation worked, although produced lot of messages
/opt/gnu/bin/tar: texmf/xdvi/xdvi.cfg: Could not create file: Permission denied
(script attemts to copy many of the files several times)
Strangely, this does not happen for me (on i386-linux). (It happened in
previous releases, though.) Can you please tell me exactly what
commands you give to the install script, so I can try to reproduce?
It would be bizarre to me that it only happened on sparc, although I
suppose anything is possible.
4. pdflatex (sparc solaris platform) produces pdf with errors in
embedding fonts. Here is Acrobat Reader's error message: "Unable to
extract the embedded font 'ZWWGZN+CMSS10'. Some characters may not
display or print correctly."
Martin or Hans or anyone, do you have any insight into this?
