- Subject: tetex installation error: texconfig init fails
I am not managing to get tetex installed. The step
`texconfig init' fails. Below I have copied the quick
installation help in /usr/doc/Cygwin/tetex-beta20001218.README
and the results I have got
# Quick Installation:
# Here is an overview of a typical installation:
# 1] install the binaries with the cygwin setup as usual;
# 2] install TDS at /usr/share/texmf (see above):
# cd /usr/share
# mkdir -p texmf
# tar -zxf teTeX-src-1.0.tar.gz
This seems strange to me. Isn't it the teTex-texmf tarfile
that I have to untar in texmf directory? Do I have to
install the whole tetex distribution, enter the teTeX-1.0
and run configure? (I also tried this but configure fails.)
# 3] check the configuration files in /usr/share/texmf/web2c
# texmf.cnf, fmtutil.cnf and mktex.cnf
# please note that the distributed configuration files are
# (with extension) frozen to avoid overwriting.
Do I have to rename these .frozen files later. I tried both
possibiblities but the problem persists.
# 4] configure TeX:
# texconfig confall
# texconfig rehash (or mktexlsr)
# texconfig init
First two commands run without error. The third produces the error
Running mf to create plain base ...
! mf.pool doesn't match; tangle me again (or fix the path).
and similar errors for several .pool files appearing in
# and to configure what you need:
# See /usr/doc/tetex-XXX/QuickInstall for more informations.
As I said I also tried this but configure does not find lex...
For the moment when I run latex I get
I can't find the format file `latex.fmt'!
Thanks a lot in advance for any suggestion!
