70 The <application>biber</application> source tarball shown above
71 downloads with the correct name, biber-&biber-version;.tar.gz,
72 if using a browser such as Firefox. If you prefer to use a command line
73 program such as wget, you normally would obtain
74 v&biber-version;.tar.gz. To obtain this package with the proper
75 filename, run:
76
77<screen><userinput>wget -c &biber-download-http; \
78 -O biber-&biber-version;.tar.gz</userinput></screen>.

82 If you have updated to a new release of texlive-source, biber and its
83 perl dependencies are still in present in <filename
84 class="directory">/usr</filename> and do not need to be rebuilt. However,
85 biblatex installs in <filename
86 class="directory">/opt/texlive/&texlive-year;</filename> and does need to
87 be reinstalled.
