Bug#648278: texlive-base fails to install

tags 648278 + unreproducible

This is very strange. Can you send the output of running
as root.

Furthermore, can you send the output of
	kpsewhich -debug=-1 tcfmgr.map 2>&1

> Interestingly, I can find a tcfmgr.map file in /usr/share/texmf/texconfig:

Yes, that is not the problem. It is that it cannot be found.

Can you run *AFTER* you have done the above,
	mktexlsr /usr/share/texmf
and retry to configure texlive-base

Best wishes

A street dance. The two partners approach from opposite directions and
try politely to get out of each other's way. They step to the left,
step to the right, apologise, step to the left again, apologise again,
bump into each other and repeat as often as unnecessary.
