TeX Live (Italiano)
Dal tetex -- la distribuzione standard di Tex per i sistemi Unix -- non era mantenuta molto, molti utenti hanno espresso la volontà di rimpiazzarlo con TeXLive. Guardate questa discussione per maggiori dettagli. La buona notizia è che il pacchetto TeXLive per Arch Linux (basato su TeXLive 2007 con update incrementali all'ultima versione di tutti i pacchetti CTAN) si trova ora in community (Sept. 27, 2007). Installando texlive-core (85MB).
Lista di tutti i pacchetti texlive-*
I pacchetti texlive sono divisi in quattro gruppi: texlive-most, texlive-most-doc, texlive-lang, e texlive-lang-doc. Il pacchetto texlive-all istallerà tutto. Come potete vedere, la documentazione è stata divisa in pacchetti, per gli utenti che vogliono risparmiare spazio o preferiscono accedere alla documentazione online.
NOTE: For most packages in texlive-most (but not for texlive-bin and the documention), a *-svn version is also available in [community].
The essential package texlive-core contains the basic texmf-dist tree, while texlive-bin contains the binaries. It is based on the “medium” install scheme of the original TeXLive installable CD and DVD. All other packages are based on the eponymous collections in TeXLive. The links bring to a list of the CTAN packages contained in each Arch package.

Building SVN versions of TeXlive packages
[Note: This is no longer necessary since the svn packages are in community.]
For power-users who would like to enjoy the very latest from CTAN without installing too much by hand, the following directions will enable you to easily build and install texlive-svn packages:
Note first that texlive-core-svn contains the same binaries than texlive-core (based on the February 2007 release of TeX Live with the inclusion of a bugfix patch). The svn version, as its name suggests, targets the texmf trees in the current development version on tug.org's subversion server (retrieved via rsync for performance).
To build the svn packages, get texlive-svn.zip which contains the complete build tree, i.e., the PKGBUILDs and auxiliary files for all the packages mentioned above. The *.paths files (which contain the paths that rsync needs to retrieve) won't be up-to-date, so you need also the following: tl-scripts.zip.
Be sure you have installed in the system xorg-server, t1lib, gd, rsync, flex and bison packages. Assuming you are in the same directory where you downloaded the .zip files, follow these instructions:
$ unzip texlive-svn.zip -d texlive-svn $ unzip tl-scripts.zip -d texlive-svn $ cd texlive-svn $ ./updatepathfiles #Wait a little.. ... $ ls
You'll see all the packages names, you should think about what you need. But surely you need texlive-core.
$ cd texlive-core $ makepkg -c
Be patient! Sources are big, and compilation takes quite a long time. If everything goes well you can install texlive-core with pacman:
$ pacman -U texlive-core-2007*.pkg.tar.gz #press tab to complete
If something goes wrong, join us in the forum and look to see if your problem has already been solved. If not, we will happily help! Post everything you think useful and the build.log made this way:
$ makepkg -c 2>&1 | tr -d -c '\n[:print:]' | tee build.log
$ makepkg -c 2>&1 | tee build.log
but do not passing through tr won't delete non-printable characters.
Even after failure you can delete the pkg and src folders. Don't delete the texmf* folders yet, otherwise you will have to download everything again the next time you run makepkg. The other files in the PKGBUILD directory should not be deleted, they are part of the sources.
If you need some other package, just repeat the above in the appropriate directory. The other packages do not need compiling so they should just work.
If you want to compile all packages without thinking too much about it you may use, from the directory where you unpacked the .zip file:
$ for d in texlive-*; do cd "$d" && makepkg -dc ; touch ../"$d"-"$?" && cd .. ; done
This will make every package of every directory that fall in the texlive-* expression and make a file with the directory name and return code, zero means success, non-zero failure. So if texlive-core has been compiled correctly you'll have a file called texlive-core-0 in the directory.
