old + new context mixed up

an option is to download the linux minimal distribution from out site and use that for testing, install it in (e.g.) 

  /usr/local/mytex

go there, and run 

  . setuptex (shell script) 

and then 

  mktexlsr

plus 

  texexec --make --all 

and you should have a working context (when you open a new console setuptex is to be run once before you start working)
