Might be a good idea to mention what kind of system you are on.

Which version of the installer did you use (when you download and unpack it, the created folder has a date in the name.

Subject: [tex-live] Errors in installation via install-tl


I already did some attempts to install TexLive via the install-tl script and
it failed everytime.

To catch the errors messages, I started a minimal build, I will attach all the
log file, but this is the end, wich contain the crucial part.

All I did is untar the file, enter root, and run ./install-tl

The error message:

Could someone please help me?
