Hello Karl, and everyone involved

on Linux raven 5.10.98-1-MANJARO #1 SMP PREEMPT Sun Feb 6 12:22:54 UTC
2022 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Installation of pretest runs without any problem.

Test of an lualatex document runs without any error.

_Great work!_

But one think I noticed:

Is it OK that the GUI doesn't follow a linked path or maybe I have
	wrong link settings ?

Settings and what I did:
My TL's are placed at one partition /data/opt/texlive/<year>/… 
and linked into the root partition at /opt/…

lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 17 16. Jan 2021  /opt/texlive -> /data/opt/texlive

the …/<year>/… directories below belong to the USER (me).

In ~/.zshrc I changed the year of the TL path to …/2022/… 
download the pretest installer into ~/Downloads/TexLive/2022_pretest
#> wget 
and run 
#> ./install-tl -gui -repository

The Gui does not show the linked path to /opt/texlive/<year>/… but
/data/opt/texlive/<year>/… could be directly selected.

Any hint or suggestion?
