19 Before starting to build TeX Live, set up your PATH so
20 that the system can properly find the files. If you set up your login
21 scripts as recommended in <xref linkend='postlfs-config-profile'/>, update
22 the needed paths by appending to the
23 <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> script. The programs are always
24 installed in an &lt;ARCH&gt;-linux subdirectory and on 32-bit x86 this is
25 always i386-linux. For x86_64 and i?86 we can generate this as $TEXARCH:

29 <para>
30 If upgrading from a previous year's version, you should manually
31 edit <filename>extrapaths.sh</filename> to ensure that the version for
32 the year you wish to use is the only TeX present (some people need to
33 keep multiple years available to ensure there are no regressions in
34 their documents).

59 The standard MANPATH and INFOPATH path are specified above to
60 ensure they are included. If they are already set in the boot script
61 procedure, the pathappend function will ensure duplicates are
62 removed, so including them here will do no harm.

67 The new paths can be immediately activated by running <command>source

72 You should now proceed either to <xref linkend="tl-installer"/> for

74 installing from source.
