  Please try to open Terminal.app and write:

 and see if that one fails as well.

When I write:
source /Users/robertblackstone/context-minimals-04-06-11/tex/setuptex,
 (this is the correct name)
in all but one caseTerminal responds with:

/Users/robertblackstone/context-minimals-04-06-11 is not a valid TEXROOT path.
(There is no file
/Users/robertblackstone/context-minimals-04-06-11/texmf/tex/plain/base/plain.tex)
provide a proper tex root (like '. setuptex /something/tex')

Only if I change the working directory to
/Users/robertblackstone/context-minimals-04-06-11/tex/ the response
is: Setting /Users/robertblackstone/context-minimals-04-06-11/tex
as ConTeXt root. and I can process tex-files both with mkii and mkiv
. The resulting pdf, however, placed in the same working directory, is
not correct.

I found, helped by ConTeXt garden, that I could activate
ConTeXt-minimals-04-06-11 on this machine by typing:
export 
PATH=/Users/robertblackstone/ConTeXt-minimals-04-06-11/tex/texmf-osx-ppc/bin:$PATH
from any directory and get the correct output.
I accordingly changed the TeXShop engine and that also works now.

The only issue still remaining is the interruption during the
installation process. I have no clue as to what could be the cause. I
tried to avoid it by running umask 0022 and even umask 0002 before
creating the new minimals directory, but that did not help.
But using ctrl-D a few times, as Mojca suggested, when the
installation process stops midway, eventually results in a usable
minimals. Maybe some functions do not work but I have not yet
discovered any.
So that might not be a real problem after all.
Thanks for the help.


Kind regards,

 How exactly do you run MKIV?

I always use TeXShop with an engine-file (in
~/Library/TeXShop/Engines), made executable, in this case
mkiv-04-06.engine, which reads:
#!/bin/bash

source /Users/robert/context-minimals-04-06/tex/setuptex
context $1
It works on my other machines.
Incidentally, I found that mkiv does not work on this machine with the
october minimals either, so maybe it never worked on this PowerMac
(Tiger). I failed to notice it because I always used mkii and I only
started using mkiv recently. I cannot check it either, since I trashed
earlier minimals.

Judging from your log:

The argument 
/Users/robertblackstone/Dropbox/C-tests/Titles-interline_spacing_of/Titles-interline_spacing_of-test1PM.tex
is not a valid TEXROOT path.

I would say that there is a problem with your TeXshop. This means that
you must have called

source /Users/robert/context-minimals-04-06/tex/setuptex
/Users/robertblackstone/Dropbox/C-tests/Titles-interline_spacing_of/Titles-interline_spacing_of-test1PM.tex

somehow. Please try to open Terminal.app and write:

 Please send a complete log.

The saved Terminal output of an installation of the minimals which I
tried this morning can be downloaded here:
http://web.me.com/blackstone.robert/filechute/RB-Install_minimals_04-06-11-Saved_Terminal_Output.txt

The process stopped 3 times (see lines 6612, 7698 and 7718.) but
eventually finished.
The result is that ConTeXt mkii works, but mkiv does not.

When I try to process a file with mkiv, the log says:
The argument 
/Users/robertblackstone/Dropbox/C-tests/Titles-interline_spacing_of/Titles-interline_spacing_of-test1PM.tex
is not a valid TEXROOT path.
(There is no file

MtxRun | error unable to identify cnf file
MtxRun | error unable to identify cnf file
MtxRun | no cnf files found (TEXMFCNF may not be set/known)
MtxRun | unknown script: context

Incidentally, when I run the same tex-file with mkiv on my G4
PowerBook, also installed today, the first two sentences of the log
are the same. However, it does not ask me to provide a proper tex root
and the file is processed normally.

I would be grateful for any help but please don't spend too much time
on it. I can live with the installation as it is now. Fortunately I
have this other Mac on which the minimals work without problems.

 Where did you install the minimals?

First of all: thank you for your quick reply.

As usual I installed it in a subdirectory of my Home directory. I
would assume that there would not be any problems of permissions.
However I did chmod -R 755 in this (sub)directory but to no avail.

 Can you try
   chown -R yourusername /path/to/installation
Yes, I did, but again the process stopped.

 (I even do not know how to abort the process other than quitting Terminal.)

 Ctrl-C (a couple of times), Ctrl-D, Ctrl-\, ... or killall (but I'm
 not experience enough in giving you further details).

Ctrl-C did nothing but Ctrl-D set the installation process in motion again.
The result is that I can use mkii but not mkiv.

I clearly need to experiment a bit more.
 Thanks again for your advice which really helped me.

[NTG-context] Problem installing minimals on PowerMac G4

2011-06-02 Thread Robert Blackstone
Hi,

When installing the current version of ConTeXt-minimals on my old
PowerMac G4 (OSX 10.4.11), on which the minimals have been installed,
and have worked, without any problems up till october last year, the
process stopped midway, because the file 'metafun' could not be
opened.
The last lines of the log are:

TeXExec | using tex engine xetex
TeXExec | using tex format path ./xetex
TeXExec | unable to make format due to lack of permissions
TeXExec | using mp engine mpost
TeXExec | using mps format path .
TeXExec | generating mps format metafun
This is MetaPost, version 1.504 (kpathsea version 6.0.0)
! I can't open file `metafun'.
* metafun

Please type another input file name: 

Does anybody know what can be done about this?
(I even do not know how to abort the process other than quitting Terminal.)

Incidentally, the PowerMac has not been used between october and now.
Thanks in advance.
