Installing latex for use with LinuxTex
I give some hints here that worked for me for installing a latex distro from scratch on a shared server.
I used the tetex distribution by Thomas Esser, which can be found here [(approve links)
diff]. As the files are
quite large (you will need probably more than 400MB to compile the package unless you disable many options) I recommend
tetex-texmf-3.0po.tar.gz only after the compilation of the sources in
tetex-src-3.0.tar.gz and cleaning up (,but
I disabled the
xdvi related stuff, as some library was missing for compiling this and it is not needed anyway. See
on how to do this.
