Then, I think, the -sys versions were not enabled ... meaning no
personal installations supported (by TeX search paths). The -sys
variants came in 2004 to (over) us (TeX Live 2005 and teTeX 3). And
then came Tiger, recommending to use 'sudo -H' instead of simple sudo.
Paul, I think you started in 2003 and must have updated – or can you
run a 'sudo -H updmap ...' or even better 'sudo -H -u root
updmap ...'? If your updmap is from 'TeX Live 2005 and teTeX 3' then
it would create files and directories in /var/root/Library. Otherwise
it should do the system job and create a .cfg and a .log file in /usr/
local/teTeX/share/texmf.local/web2c. Anyway, it's kind of academic.
This version info, you sent earlier, states that you're up-to-date in
the most recent TeX i-Package: "This is pdfeTeX, Version
3.141592-1.30.4-2.2 (Web2C 7.5.5)." This is software written/released
early this year. Then you should use the -sys variants of the system
And another anyway: there should be some file or simple command to
tell which TeX (i-Package) one is talking or writing about. Including
a hint to use the -sys or the pure variants.
Our enemies are innovative and resourceful, and so are we. They never
stop thinking about new ways to harm our country and our people, and
neither do we.
