Subject: [texhax] tlmgr on debian

So I want to keep the Debian (Ubuntu in this case) packages installed
for dpkg dependencies, however I want the current texlive packages -
I'm pretty sure everything is installed (as I got the svn repo and ran
install-ti and that worked) but I'd like tlmgr to work as well. Any

 % tlmgr update --list
