Hi folks,

It has been a while since I installed TeX Live 2009 on my Mac running 
10.6. Now I decide to install TeX Live 2011. I downloaded install-tl 
script, and ran it, but it failed as follow:

~/Downloads/install-tl-20110510]$ ./install-tl
Installing TeX Live 2010 from: 
Platform: universal-darwin => 'universal binaries for MacOSX/Darwin'
Distribution: net  (downloading)
Using URL: http://mirror.unl.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet
Directory for temporary files: 
Loading http://mirror.unl.edu/ctan/systems/texlive/tlnet/tlpkg/texlive.tlpdb
./install-tl: The TeX Live versions of the local installation
and the repository being accessed are not compatible:
       local: 2010
  repository: 2011
Perhaps you need to use a different CTAN mirror?

So it looks like install-tl script tried to install TeX Live 2010 for 
me, not the latest one 2011. Anybody as the same experience?

Thank you very much,
