#13445 closed defect (fixed)

texdoc broken on texlive source install

Reported by: ken@… Owned by: ken@…
Priority: normal Milestone: 10.0
Component: BOOK Version: SVN
Severity: normal Keywords:


Stephen Berman noticed that texdoc fails, reporting

texdoc error: No texlive.tlpdb nor shipped tlpdb data found

I happen to be on a system where TL is still 2019, and there too it failed. Turns out that each year's tlpdb-full is supplied as a tarball (file, signature, md5 and sha hashes). Dropping that into /opt/texlive/YYYY/tlpkg allows texdoc to work, at least on a system where ruby has been installed.

Proved that hiding the rake program (from ruby) does not prevent this working.

I hope I've fixed this in r23027, but I've reworked the instructions for the book to (hopefully) match what we're doing for texmf. Meanwhile, leaving open until the book has rendered and I can try to add an erratum.
