In Ubuntu I have put minimals under /opt/luatex/minimals (and minimals-beta in /opt/luatex/minimals-beta) . They are unrelated with package system, texlive2007, texlive2008 and so on ; also installing/updating minimals is easy (at least on ubuntu) apart luatex version (but it's not really a problem) . I run every tests under minimals and minimals-beta . If they work, I assume minimals / minimals-beta are OK . Your test works on my minimals, so (my) minimals are OK. So if you install minimals /minimals-beta you can even say what is wrong in your packaging (if something is wrong: maybe you have mixed files) . I feel good with ubuntu, but for TeX related stuff I prefear manual installation . I don't expect that anyone agree on this . -- luigi
