Karl + Norbert et al,

Raspberry Pi-s have a non-standard configuration that makes installation
a bit less simple than on your regular PC or Mac.

/// BTW
Principally caused by using SD cards for main storage and having /tmp
mounted in a smallish tmpfs. And no DVD drives or HDD. This feature can
make install harder and risks failing altogether.

When you know these specifics we hope it installs easily.

Once installed; TeX works lovely.


Now have added a good working page to UKTUG's www. Probably basically
stable but will almost certainly get a few tweaks over the next few

Please will you include the link in  relevant places in your
documentation. Note cutoff is tomorrow (Monday).
