Installing Texlive2005 in FreeBSD

First of all insert the cd and mount it doing:

mount -t cd9660 /dev/acd0 /cdrom

then proceed following the post in:

https://jordilin.wordpress.com/2006/07/31/howto-installing-and-compiling-the-latest-latex-and-kile-packages/

when finished try to write the command latex and see if you get any error:

I got the error:

/usr/libexec/ld-elf.so.1: Shared object libm.so.2 not found

But it is solved by going to /usr/lib and doing

ln -s libm.so libm.so.2

then I got another error, similar but with libc.so.4 and solved the same way as before but doing

ln -s libc.so libc.so.4 (in /usr/lib)

Then you must type

texconfig

and do a rehash

All solved!! Happy TeXing in FreeBSD!!!!
