texlive: update to 2010

Description

TeX Live 2010 is out. I don't expect to have time to work on updating the port for at least a few weeks, but am preemptively creating this ticket for tracking progress.

Hopefully there are no major changes in upstream packaging and this will be as simple as regenerating the distfiles and portfiles. Perhaps we'll even have a working TL2010 while it's still 2010. :-)

For those who want to follow along, I'm working on the update in my users directory in the repository: http://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/users/dports/ports/

I believe we're now at a point where all the binaries build and all the ports install, though they're pretty much untested and I'm already aware of a few minor bugs. Also a few packaging improvements left to make.

If someone is feeling truly brave, you could potentially try it out by checking out that directory and adding it to your sources.conf, but I wouldn't really recommend it just yet. Note that you would have to uninstall your existing texlive ports before building the new ones as I don't think an upgrade would work yet.

Some new features in the TL2010 ports:

texmf.cnf is now generated from the contents of /opt/local/etc/texmf/texmf.cnf.d to allow users to add their own customized settings (#24204)

texlive-bin now installs binaries into a hidden location rather than /opt/local/bin so that we don't install unusable binaries and broken symlinks when the necessary texmf files are unavailable (#25460, #25875). The ports installing the texmf files will "activate" the binaries by symlinking them into /opt/local/bin

We also create symlinks for the active binaries into /opt/local/libexec/texlive/texbin for use by the MacTeX prefpane (#26784)

comment:8 Changed 10 years ago by drkp (Dan Ports)

I just regenerated the distfiles and portfiles with a few minor changes. We leave out some binaries from texlive-bin-extra and texlive-fontutils because they're available as separate ports, and use the standalone pgf port instead of keeping it in texlive-pictures for some weird dependency reasons (see #25478).

Also fixed a bug that was preventing texlive-bin from installing if icu was installed.

I think the main remaining question is whether an existing texlive 2009 installation will upgrade cleanly to the 2010 ports. I haven't tested this yet, but will shortly.

comment:9 Changed 10 years ago by drkp (Dan Ports)

r73177 adds pre-activate hooks to certain texlive ports to deactivate old (TL2009) versions of conflicting ports. It now upgrades cleanly from an existing installation of the current texlive 2009 ports.

The only remaining bugs I'm aware of are minor ones, so this should be a good time for testing if anyone feels up for it. You should be able to svn co http://svn.macports.org/repository/macports/users/dports/ports/, run portindex inside the resulting directory, and add that directory to /opt/local/macports/sources.conf. Then a port upgrade outdated ought to leave you running texlive 2010. Note that you might see some warnings about failed format generation or mktexlsr during the upgrade process; this is normal.

I'm hoping to merge the changes from this branch onto trunk next week.

I did a quick try (just did port fetch outdated for now) and got the following:

I forced the uninstall of texlive-lang-ukenglish and proceeded to fetch the rest. Not sure if I should have just upgraded rather than fetched, such that the dependency would have been taken care of?

comment:11 Changed 10 years ago by faisal.moledina@…

A couple more things. An extract dependency for texlive-basic is xz-devel. I guess it might have previously been lzmautils (?) since I had that installed and xz-devel conflicts with it. No biggie, I just removed lzmautils and it churned along.

Next was upon the upgrade of texlive-math-extra. Apologies for the following verbose output for a mere README file, but I just thought I'd be complete.

Then the rest of the upgrade ("medium" for me) went well. All in all, a pretty smooth upgrade in my opinion.

Yes, port upgrade would have picked up on the fact that texlive-lang-ukenglish was replaced by texlive-lang-english

Thanks. Looks like the binomexp package moved from texlive-latex-extra to texlive-math-extra. These conflicts were what I was fixing with r73177; seems I missed one. I added a pre-activate hook to fix it in r73240.

Great. Thanks for your help testing!

Resolution: fixed
Status: newclosed

Merged to trunk in r73314. If you were testing the ports from my branch, you may want to rebuild them -- I made a few minor changes today (and I haven't been incrementing revisions on the branch, so the ports won't automatically get rebuilt).

Note: See TracTickets for help on using tickets.
