Bugs

  • TL 2005 info is dynamically linked to an older library that we do not have
  • We have a working /usr/bin/info but now there is a conflict

  • Bugs 4 (msg), 6 (picins), possibly 8 (a config option) of tug.org list might need fixing (bother)

  • TL 2005 xdvi gives a seemingly inappropriate error "Muistialueen ylitys" (hey, I did not ask them in Finnish) but then X does not seem to work for us anyway so never mind
