TexLive 2013 on AIX platform

Postby gcr » Fri Sep 20, 2013 5:28 pm


Can you confirm that TeXLive 2013 is no more supported by default for AIX Platform on the ISO.

Concretely, If we want using TeXLive 2013 on AIX, we need recompile ourself or find binaries deposit?

Hi Gilles,

in the documentation I read in 9.2 Present the remark "powerpc-aix removed". Perhaps there wasn't much interest or support. If you are experienced with AIX and compiling, perhaps you can support the TeX Live team regarding this.

For common LaTeX usage it's often no problem to work with older releases, since many packages are stable for a long time. If it's needed to install a new package, one could do it in a local or user tree.
