== Edgy (6.10) ==
You can follow the [[Debian installation]] instructions . However, the packages depend on having <tt>tex-common</tt> later than v0.35, and the <tt>tex-common</tt> in edgy is v0.25. So go to http:// packages. ubuntu. com/ tex-common and get the feisty (7. 04) package, which will be v0. 42 or later, and install it by hand using dpkg -i tex-common_0.42_all.deb Now go to [[Debian installation]].

''I don't think this method will work much longer, if it even still works. The latest texlive packages in unstable require (for i386) a libc6 version >= 2.5-5, which is too recent even for feisty (by a tiny bit). Probably you can keep upgrading to newer context packages because they do not depend on libc6. But the pdftex and metapost binaries will not get updated (apt-get will hold back the packages that need a newer libc6).''
