33 <title>Introduction to TeX Live and its installer</title>
34
35 <para>The <application>TeX Live</application> package is a comprehensive
36 TeX document production system. It includes TeX, LaTeX2e, ConTeXt,
37 Metafont, MetaPost, BibTeX and many other programs; an extensive collection
38 of macros, fonts and documentation; and support for typesetting in many
39 different scripts from around the world.</para>
40
41 <para>This page is for people who wish to use the binary installer to
42 provide the programs, the scripts, and a lot of supporting files and
43 documentation. The installer is updated frequently, so its md5sum will
44 change if it is newer than what is shown below. Newer versions of the
45 installer are expected to work with these instructions, for so long as they
46 install to a
47 <filename class="directory">&texlive-year;/</filename> directory.</para>

127 <title>Binary Installation of TeX Live</title>
128
129 <para>The <application>TeX Live</application> set of programs with its
130 supporting documents, fonts, and utilities is very large. The upstream
131 maintainers recommend placing all files in a single directory structure.
132 BLFS recommends <filename class='directory'>/opt/texlive</filename>.</para>

134 <para>As with any other package, unpack the installer and change into its
135 directory, <filename class='directory'>install-tl-&lt;CCYYMMDD&gt;</filename>.
136 This directory name changes when the installer is updated, so replace
137 &lt;CCYYMMDD&gt; by the correct directory name.</para>

141 The distribution binaries installed below may use static linking
142 for general linux system libraries. Additional libraries or interpreters
143 as specified in the dependencies section do not need to be present during
144 the install, but the programs that need them will not run until their
145 specific dependencies have been installed.

150 With all contributed binary software, there may be a mismatch between the
151 builder's toolchain and your hardware. In most of TeX this will probably
152 not matter, but in uncommon corner cases you might hit problems.
153 e.g. if your x86_64 processor does not support 3dnowext or 3dnow, the
154 2014-06-28 binary failed in conTeXt when running LuaTeX, although lualatex
155 worked, as did the i686 binaries on the same machine. In such cases, the
156 easiest solution is to install texlive from source.

165 <para>This command is interactive and allows selection or modification of
166 platform, packages, directories, and other options. The full installation
167 scheme will require about 4.2 gigabytes of disk space. The time to complete
168 the download will depend on your internet connection speed and the
169 number of packages selected.</para>
