TeX Live 6: BUGS and UPDATES

Installation and setup

On the TeXLive 6 CD (v. 20010720 and 20010730), the size of the main memory allocated in LaTeX is wrong. To correct it:



People wishing to mount the TeX Live CD on a Mac OS computer will find that there is a sad lack in that OS in that it supports neither the Joliet nor the Rock Ridge extensions, so you will see only the ISO 9660 file names (8+3 format).

The following link leads to freeware providing a Joliet file system for Mac OS: http://www.tempel.org/joliet/

After installing this system extension, you will be able to mount any ISO 9660 CD-ROM with Joliet extensions and see the full file names, access the CD-ROM's web pages with your favorite browser, etc.

Windows 32

The autostart/setup programs on the TeX live CD on Windows 95 only run with Internet Explorer (>= 4.0?) installed. Otherwise the programs complain about WININET.DLL missing. This is missing from the documentation, but there is a redistributable component from Microsoft that will install this dll on systems where it is lacking. Run setupw32\wintdist.exe, follow the instructions and then you will be able to autorun the CD.
