   Yeah. I don't know how large the previous version was.

Linux salmo 3.10.17-smp #1 SMP Wed Oct 23 17:04:08 CDT 2013 i686 AMD

   It's slower than more modern hardware but not sufficiently slow to take
this long to install.

   I use LaTeX for 95% or more of my writing. It's also used to print checks
and reports from my business accounting software. And, there are other
applicatoins I use that typeset output using LaTeX. So, I need to
successfully install texlive20130530 ASAP.
