This: "(TeX Live 2010)" contradicts with that:

I'm not sure. But before you have to be sure that you actually use
context minimals.

Suppose, that you have TeX Live 2010 installed here:
and context minimals installed here:

Then run terminal (konsole, gnome-terminal, xterm, urxvt, ...) and
$ . /usr/local/opt/context/tex/setuptex
and _after_ that run
$ mtxrun ...

If you still get an error something is really broken.
