I answer to myself, looking to 2008 mail-post here (it seems to be a recurring issue) :

Hi dear fellows,

Trying to install ConTeXt on a virtual OS X Mavericks (with VMWare Workstation 12 Pro on Windows 10).

1. Downloading and install ConteXt Minimals simply in /Documents/context
2. In a Terminal : chmod +x first-setup.sh
3. Then : . first-setup.sh
4. After a while, downloading and setting stuff achieved, I type : cd tex, then: . setuptex. Here is the answer : "/Users/adeimantos/Documents/context/tex" is not a valid TEXROOT path.
(There is no file "/Users/adeimantos/Documents/context/tex/texmf/tex/plain/base/plain.tex")
provide a proper tex root (like '. setuptex /something/tex')

What do you think about it ?
Many thanks for your help.
