Hello,

System: FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE-p18.

I deleted my old context installation and followed the instructions
here:

http://wiki.contextgarden.net/ConTeXt_Standalone#Standalone

for a 'System-wide installation' in /opt/context

Here is what happens:

sh ./first-setup.sh --modules=all
receiving incremental file list
bin/
bin/luatex
bin/mtx-update.lua
bin/mtxrun
bin/texlua -> luatex

sent 92 bytes  received 11,386,172 bytes  843,426.96 bytes/sec

When you want to use context, you need to initialize the tree by typing:

  . /opt/context/tex/setuptex

in your shell or add
  "/opt/context/tex/texmf-freebsd-amd64/bin"
to PATH variable if you want to set it permanently.
This can usually be done in .bashrc, .bash_profile
(or whatever file is used to initialize your shell).

Something seems to be broken.  Can someone help?



Thanks,
Roger
