I installed tex using texlive2004, and it created a
directory /usr/local/texlive2004/  in my Fedora3
linux.
I wonder if the following command would do
the job wihout harm:
 
texsync --full --update --force
--destination=/usr/local/texlive2004
locate the local tree
  kpsewhich --expand-var=$TEXMFLOCAL
and sycn (or unzip) the files to that location
btw, if you rsync the whole tree, you will get a minimal context tree, i.e. a 
subset of texlive, and that can best be installed outside the texlive tree

[NTG-context] texsync - help

2005-02-15 Thread Ciro A. Soto
I just discover the existance of texsync by browsing
the manuals.
I tried to update the manuals and it worked fine in a
$HOME/tmp directory.

I am kind of skeptical in updating the whole context
installation because I don't know the proper
destination option.

I installed tex using texlive2004, and it created a
directory /usr/local/texlive2004/  in my Fedora3
linux.

I wonder if the following command would do
the job wihout harm:
 
texsync --full --update --force
--destination=/usr/local/texlive2004

and what else should I do afterward.

thank you
Ciro
