Debian TeXlive install
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):

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
