Thanks. I did almost exactly this yesterday. Instead of choosing the
MacTeX package from i-installer, I chose the TeXLive package form i-
installer. It worked (works) like a charm.
I want to take this chance to thank Gerben for all his work. I'm
really going to miss i-installer. If not for that and TeXShop
(thanks to Richard Koch et. al.), I'd probably still be running
Textures in Classic. I'd offer my help to keep the i-installer going
except that I'm in that not-quite-a-chimp group with Alain.
Best to all,
