texconfig is a shell script.  It seems that one of the programs it
tries to run fails on your OS because of some terminal related
problem.  Try running the script with -x to see where it fails:

TEXMFMAIN=/usr/local/share/texmf \
PATH=/usr/local/bin/i586-pc-linux-gnu:/usr/local/bin/i586-pc-linux-gnu:/sbin:/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin
 \
sh -x /usr/local/bin/i586-pc-linux-gnu/texconfig init

That might provide a clue.

(I am assuming that the TEXMFMAIN=/usr/local/share/texmf bit was part
of the command.  There seems to be a missing backslash, but maybe that
was your mail program wrapping the line.)

It appears that your TERM variable is set to generic rather than 
something like xterm or vt100.  I think this failure is in the
last step of the install, where you need to do the final setup.
You can try fixing the terminal settings and running texconfig init
manually.  Whenever I install a new TeX distro I always try running
latex ltxcheck (as an ordinary user in a scratch directory) to make sure
the basics are working correctly, followed by some simple things like
etex story  dvips story, latex sample2e  dvips sample2e, etc.

teTeX 1.0.7 doesn't install

2002-09-17 Thread Magnus Mager

I'm new to this group: Hello world!

This is my problem:
I've downloaded, configured and compiled teTeX 1.0.7 whithout any errors by 
doing the following:
./configure --prefix=/usr/local 
make

When I now starting make install (as root of course) it seems to install 
quite a much of things but then suddently fails:
make install
[...]
make: *** [install] Error 1

What does this error message mean? - I'm knowing the normaly there is an 
error message before make stops doing but this error is printed in the first 
line of an cleared screen (scrolling dosen't even help).

Then I've redirected the output in a install.log file:
make install  install.log

install.log:

test -f /usr/local/bin/i586-pc-linux-gnu/mktexlsr  \
  TEXMFMAIN=/usr/local/share/texmf

Whatever this means... Any suggestions?
