TeXlive is packaged for Debian/sid/i386. Users can enable them by adding the following line in your /etc/apt/sources.list file (as root):

  echo "deb pool/" >>/etc/apt/sources.list
  apt-get update

and follow the instructions here: [[1]].


Basically, after having purged any ohter TeX distrib such as tetex:

  apt-get remove --purge tetex-* texinfo

you just have to apt-get the packages as root:

  apt-get install texlive-context
  apt-get install texlive-pdfetex
  apt-get install texlive-metapost


It may be of interest to get fonts as well:

  apt-get install texlive-fontsrecommended
  apt-get install lmodern
  apt-get install cm-super


And to get back texinfo if needed:

  apt-get install texinfo
