18 <para>After the package download is complete, the next step is to make sure
19 that the system can properly find the files. If you set up your login
20 scripts as recommended in <xref linkend='postlfs-config-profile'/>, update
21 the needed paths by appending to the
22 <filename></filename> script. The programs are always
23 installed in an &lt;ARCH&gt;-linux subdirectory and on 32-bit x86 this is
24 always i386-linux. For x86_64 and i?86 we can generate this as $TEXARCH:
25 </para>
27<!-- EOF should NOT be in double quotes, we want it to evaluate $TEXARCH -->
28<!-- this is also in texlive.xml -->
29<screen role="root"><userinput>export TEXARCH=$(uname -m | sed -e 's/i.86/i386/' -e 's/$/-linux/') &amp;&amp;

40 <note><para>The standard MANPATH and INFOPATH path are specified above to
41 ensure they are included. If they are already set in the boot script
42 procedure, the pathappend function will ensure duplicates are
43 removed, so including them here will do no harm.</para></note> -->
45 <para>The new paths can be immediately activated by running <command>source

48 <para>If you arrived here after installing the TeX Live binary and do not
49 wish to build from source, your installation is now complete. To continue
50 building from source, please procede to <xref linkend="texlive"/>.</para>
52 <para>Alternatively, if you do not wish to install the programs for asy,
53 xindy, and biber (on a from-source build) you can stop here.</para>
