Call for testers: texlive-custom


Hi,

here comes a texlive-custom.SlackBuild and corresponding binary-package, built today on current64.
texi2html is included, as it used to be in the tetex package shipped with slackware.
"Custom" means language support like in the texlive-medium-scheme + single tex-packages, to extend its use. I wrote a script(texmf_get.sh) to make picking single packages possible, as the texlive-netinstaller only allows choosing schemes and select/deselect collections. The schemes are generally heavy in size, or small/unusable for most tasks.

What i try to achive, the package
-should be able to compile documentation for all packages shipped by slackware(and SBo), that rely on tex on buildtime.
-should not get larger than tetex(including the texmf-tree), to maybe become an option to be shipped officially
-should grow within this range(size) by tex-packages that are most widely used.
-should be maintainable as easy as possible(see texmf_get.sh)
-should be the base for two additional packages(doc and all remaining texlive-packages), to provide a full texlive installation also.

Documentation(also fetched by texmf_get) for the current set of tex-packages is way bigger than the whole tetex-distribution, so i decided to not include it. I will provide an extra doc-package soon.

Help is appreciated in
-finding SlackBuilds which use tex at buildtime, so i can test these
-suggesting tex-packages which may be needed by most texers
-using my package for general feedback/improvements

This package conflicts with the tetex-package, be sure to remove tetex before installing texlive-custom.

Thanks,

Franzen

I'd just like to say that I approve of this effort - I've offered ownership of the SBo texlive build to Franzen if he wants it.
Franzen, I did get your email - sorry I've not responded (it got bumped out of sight in my inbox - too much mail lately). I used the texscythe package at SBo for cutting apart the official texlive texmf tarballs, but given my lack of success at building something that worked properly using 2015 sources, maybe you shouldn't bother with it; I like your script.

I plan to test this as soon as I get a free moment. Thanks for your effort!

Thanks! You can ignore my mail, just use the slackbuild/texmf_get above for testing, as i've changed some things to get a small base/custom-package.

With the current upgrade texinfo to 6.1, there is no need for texi2html as it has stopped development, texinfo comes with texi2any with html support, it also have a compatible mode for texi2html output.

Thank you franzen for your efforts for building a small but extendable texlive package. I will definitely try it with my next install of slackware.

texlive-custom package was renamed.
I will provide a slackware64-14.1 texlive-20150521-package soon. Unless somebody requests it, 32bit-packges get low priority.
texlive-doc and texlive-remainder packages are now online, to provide a full texlive installation.

If you want to help to improve this project, upgrade your tetex with texlive-20150521 and leave the texlive-remainder package uninstalled for testing. Of interest for me are all kind of tex-documents that used to work with tetex, you may also send me files to test.

Thank you for the work Franzen, that's wonderful news. By the way, xindy was broken in the old 64 bit texlive Slackbuild, does it work in yours? (I am not on -current so I can not try the new package yet).

14.1 package is now online, compiled with xindy and texi2html. Packages for slackware-current will remain without texi2html.

texi2any pdf output is not working properly if only texlive-20150521-x86_64-1jsc is installed.
After installing of texlive-remainder-20160310-noarch-2jsc, it works.

Attached a simple test texinfo file (simple.txt), as forum does not allow attached of file with extension name ".texi".

The following command will give errors:
Code:
texi2any --pdf  simple.txt
Tested on Slackware64-current.

File Type: txt simple.txt (952 Bytes, 24 views)

Code:
/usr/bin/texi2dvi: TeX neither supports -recorder nor outputs \openout lines in its log file

I can't reproduce this here. "texi2dvi simple.txt" and "texi2any --pdf simple.txt" both compile fine here. Please send me your simple.log

OK. I finally got it reproduce. For this error, since it is for the log file, so no output at all.

1. If you have texlive-remainder installed, no error.
2. Removing the texlive-remainder package still give no error.
3. I remove all texlive package and remove all remaining directory /usr/share/texmf-var /usr/share/texmf-config/,
only have /usr/share/texmf/tex/latex/gnuplot/gnuplot.cfg left over as that is from gnuplot.
remove ~/.texlive2015
4. re-install texlive-20150521-x86_64-2jsc.
5. Then problem appear.
